This site houses the largest collection of Darwin's writings ever published including the stolen notebook he carried with him on Galapagos Island. Most of the material is appearing online for the first time. Currently there are more than 50,000 pages of searchable text and 40,000 images of both publications and transcribed manuscripts. Most of the materials are available both as fully formatted electronic text and colour images of the originals. Darwin's works are also available as free machine-read audio mp3 files. New content is continually being added.
This project was designed and directed by Dr John van Wyhe of Christ's College, Cambridge, and is hosted by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities at the University of Cambridge. The launch marks the end of the first year of the three-year's funding awarded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
