About me12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882

Charles Darwin on Wikipedia

About my libraryMy son, Francis Darwin, donated the bulk of my scientific library to the Botany School at Cambridge University. They were cataloged by H.W. Rutherford (the catalog can be seen here.)

The remainder of my library remains at my residence of Down House, and the Thingamabrarians responsible for putting my library here on LibraryThing have been unable to find a catalog of those volumes, so this is an incomplete representation of my library.

A few of the volumes in the collection at Cambridge were added by Francis at the time of the donation, and were not in the original collection at Down House. These are included here and tagged accordingly.
