Origin of Species by Charles Darwin

I usually recommend the first edition, but can someone give an easy way of checking from the preview whether it's the sixth (last in Darwin's lifetime).

From wikipedia, my bold to highlight information:

Quote:
Darwin made extensive revisions to the sixth edition of the Origin (this was the first edition in which he used the word "evolution" which had commonly been associated with embryological development, though all editions concluded with the word "evolved", and added a new chapter VII, Miscellaneous objections, to address Mivart's arguments
Check the ToC for the title of Chapter VII ?

This copy of the book for example has Chapter VII Instinct

This kindle book has Chapter VII Miscellaneous objections.

Thanks, that does it (except for a French translation for which the preview doesn't show a TOC).
