Goood news for the world of science!

Before reading... see the manuscripts from here

"The complete evolutionary works of Charles Darwin have gone online, including the stolen notebook he carried in his pocket around the Galapagos Islands." Reuters

It is an amazing web site because it includes scanned documents. It is a really interesting site. It is a bit slow now.. (probably because of the big amount of visitors) but is really worth!

From the site:

"Most of the editions provided here appear online for the first time such as the first editions of Journal of Researches [or Voyage of the Beagle] (1839), The descent of Man (1871), The Zoology of the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle (1838-43) and the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th editions of the Origin of Species. There are also many newly transcribed and never before published manuscripts such as Darwin's Beagle field notebooks. Also appearing for the first time online are complete images of Darwin's early notebooks on geology, transmutation of species and metaphysical enquiries. "
