Description / On the Origin of Species

Possibly the most important and challenging scientific book ever published, On the Origin of Species remains surprisingly modern and direct and is presented here in a faithful facsimile edition.

Taken from the second edition (1860), this text is the same as the first except for some minor corrections and so is the purest distillation of Charles Darwin's original vision. It includes the introductory appendix, 'An Historical Sketch of the Recent Progress of Opinion on the Origin', which first appeared in the third edition (1861).
