On the Origin of Species: Darwin's Enduring Masterpiece

Charles Darwin's "On the Origin of Species," first published in 1859, stands as one of the most revolutionary and influential books in scientific history. Its instant bestseller status underscores its impact, and to this day, it remains a significant work with its surprisingly modern and direct language.

This edition is a faithful facsimile of the second edition from 1860, which contains minor corrections from the original, offering readers the purest distillation of Darwin's vision. It also includes an introductory appendix, "An Historical Sketch of the Recent Progress of Opinion on the Origin," from the third edition of 1861, and a new foreword.

The book, celebrated for its pioneering theory of evolution, places Darwin as one of the greatest British scientists. This edition, brought to us by the Natural History Museum, is noted for its classic presentation and quality. It's not just an academic text but also a collector's item, praised for its accessible pricing compared to other facsimile editions.

John Riutta from describes this edition as perfect for both reference and personal enjoyment, highlighting its classic typeface, composition, and embossed cover that befits a book of such substance. "On the Origin of Species" continues to be a cornerstone in the fields of science, particularly in Life Sciences, Evolution, Biology, Natural History, and more, making it an invaluable addition to any library.
