New on Galaxy of Images … Holographic Darwin

Charles Darwin, Holograph manuscript from Darwin's On the origin of species.

A recent addition to the Libraries' Galaxy of Images are two images from Darwin's manuscript papers, from the Dibner Library, including Holograph manuscript, page 242, from Darwin's On the origin of species, with ms. inscription on the verso from Henrietta (Darwin) Litchfield dated May/June 1902 presenting the page to Isobel Dods-Withers. This manuscript page, apparently one that was sold at Sotheby's London on July 21, 1958 (item 472), is thought to have come from the draft of the 1st ed.
