“On the Origin of Species”

I have been looking for a chance to see (and hold) the U’s copy of Charles Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species” for a while now and today I finally got the chance! The book turned 150 years old back in November and the U has a lovely 1st edition from 1859. Just think, this book might have been held by Chuck himself (well, not very likely, but you never know. Weirder things have happened). And yes thats me holding the book!
