Works of Charles Darwin: On the Origin of Species (1st, 2nd, and 6th Editions) and 15 Other Books
 
 
Charles Darwin was an English naturalist, eminent as a collector and geologist, who proposed and provided scientific evidence that all species of life have evolved over time from common ancestors through the process of natural selection. Darwin’s discovery remains the foundation of biology, as it provides a unifying logical explanation for the diversity of life.
This collection includes 17 most significant works complemented by author biography and contemporary analysis. These books are readable by a non-specialist. They attract widespread interest today as they did 150 years ago.

Introduction
When on board H.M.S. Beagle, as naturalist, I was much struck with certain facts in the distribution of the organic beings inhabiting South America, and in the geological relations of the present to the past inhabitants of that continent. These facts, as will be seen in the latter chapters of this volume, seemed to throw some light on the origin of species--that mystery of mysteries, as it has been called by one of our greatest philosophers. On my return home, it occurred to me, in 1837, that something might perhaps be made out on this question by patiently accumulating and reflecting on all sorts of facts which could possibly have any bearing on it.
