Origin of Species first edition found in toilet goes to auction


origin-of-species-first-editionA first edition of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin Of Species, which languished for years in a toilet (that’s on a shelf, not in the cistern), is to be auctioned this week – it’s the 150th anniversary of this famous book on November 24. It must have been a very upmarket house to have a Darwin first edition in the Khazi.

Speaking of Origin of the Species, check out our feature about the ‘Evolution of the Origin of Species’ – 150 years of cover design.
