Overview

Origin of Speicies, both the first (1859) and the sixth (1872) editions by Charles Darwin

This file includes the two most important editions of Darwin's masterpiece. The first edition, from 1859, entitled "On the Origin of the Species", and the sixth edition, from 1872), considered the definitive edition. According to Wikipedia: "Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. Its full title was On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. For the sixth edition of 1872, the short title was changed to The Origin of Species. Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation.
