The Origin of Species, 6th Ed., 1872

One of my prized possessions: A 6th edition copy of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species from 1872.

If this isn't pure enough for you, Darwin's first draft is now available online.

What is that thing? What do you do with it? Can you get it on Google Scholar, Google Books or Amazon Kindle?

Apparently the first edition was closer to the money, though, and Darwin hadn't been pressured yet into putting a reference to "The creator" in it:


Very, very cool book anyway, though. I wish I could check it out :)
