Description

Charles Robert Darwin revolutionised the way we understand life on Earth with his theory of evolution by natural selection. This and other observations remain fundamental to the study of life sciences, and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most innovative scientists who ever lived. This timely week-to-view diary is published to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of "On the Origin of Species". Every week there is a specially selected full-page illustration as well as entries reflecting the important dates or landmarks from Darwin's life. The images include many from the Natural History Museum's extensive collection and fascinating captions give more detailed facts and highlights from Darwin's life, from the day HMS Beagle returned from its most famous voyage to the publication of "On the Origin of Species" in 1859.Including national and religious holidays, this is the perfect gift to anyone with an interest in one of the world's most famous and inspiring characters.show more
