Charles Darwin Trust Collections

Thanks to the generosity of the Darwin family, the Trust owned a magnificent collection of Darwiniana. This includes manuscript folios from On the Origin of Species; early editions of Darwin’s works, some with his annotations; letters by Darwin and to Darwin from leading contemporary thinkers; and personal artefacts. This collection has now been donated to The Linnean Society of London where it is open to all on application to the Librarian.  See The Linnean Society's website
