To see a first edition of Origin of Species is almost mythical at this stage, to see one in this condition, well it's almost biblical - though using that word alongside Origin is maybe contentious!

One of the most revolutionary books ever published, a true seachange moment in the history and thought of man - nothing short of iconic in every sense of the word.

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed on the history of Charles Darwin and the publication of the first edition of 'Origin of Species'.

A monumentally rare work with a fascinating history, if you're interested in collecting rare Charles Darwin first editions, get in touch.
