about this book

Perhaps the most readable of the great works of scientific imagination, The Origin of Species set forth a theory of evolution and natural selection that challenged contemporary beliefs about divine providence and the immutability of species.

This edition also includes an introductory sketch and a glossary Darwin later added to the original text.
