Charles Darwin recorded his experiments, observations, and thoughts in 16 books, 150 papers, and more than 80,000 pages of notes. This new digital library from the American Museum of Natural History in New York City will post the Darwin oeuvre, including previously unpublished notebooks and drafts, along with a host of other key evolutionary texts. Among the titles already on the shelves are two of Darwin's early sketches on natural selection and his colleague Thomas Huxley's book on human evolution. The library will add works by his predecessors, successors, and detractors, including early French anatomist Georges Cuvier, the late Stephen Jay Gould, and Edward O. Wilson.
