The BBC reports:
The complete works of one of history’s greatest scientists, Charles Darwin, are being published online.
The project run by Cambridge University has digitised some 50,000 pages of text and 40,000 images of original publications – all of it searchable.

From the British Medical Journal:
Charles Darwin took a Bible with him on HMS Beagle and planned to become a clergyman, but he came back a scientist.
The young Darwin was mad about beetles and geology, but he was an indifferent student who thought entering the clergy would give him a quiet life in which he could pursue his study of the natural world.
