Overview

The year 2009 marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth—and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. Celebrate the man who revolutionized science with this image- and information-filled desk diary, created by the Natural History Museum, London. It highlights major events and people in his life and work, including his historic voyage on the HMS Beagle.
Throughout, the diary features artwork and photographs—many drawn from the Museum’s extensive archives. They include specimens he collected; various editions of his books; a letter from Darwin to his wife, Emma, containing his “most solemn & last request”; and much more.
An introductory page gives key dates in Darwin’s life, as well as websites with information on his heritage, evolutionary theory, and bicentenary celebrations.
