Darwin‘s margin notes published online

Thursday 23 June 2011

Notes scribbled by Charles Darwin on the pages and in the margins of his own personal library were made available online for the first time yesterday.

The 1,480 books, half of which contain a wealth of scrawled notes, provide an insight into his thoughts and struggles as he wrote On The Origin Of Species.

Most of the collection is held in Cambridge University library and has now been digitised in an effort involving Cambridge, the Darwin Manuscripts Project at the American Museum of Natural History, the Natural History Museum and the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

The first phase of the project has just been completed, with 330 of the most heavily annotated books launched online at the Biodiversity Heritage Library at www.biodiversitylibrary.org/collection/darwinlibrary
