An Illustrated ORIGIN OF SPECIES (my 2009 review)

Darwin09

David Quammen’s sumptuous illustrated edition of Darwin’s Origin of Species appeared in time to celebrate the 150 years since the publication of this world-shattering book. The wide range of portraits, paintings, photos, engravings, press coverage, botanical and zoological specimens also give insight into Darwin’s life and times, and quiet but relentlessly inquiring mind.

My 2009 review of this book is attached (click link).
