New resource on the Athol Public Library Website!

"Darwin Online is the largest and most widely consulted edition of the  
writings of Darwin ever published. It is probably the most extensive  
scholarly website devoted to any historical figure.

This website contains over 219,804 pages of searchable text and  
219,900 electronic images, at least one exemplar of all known Darwin  
publications, reproduced to the highest scholarly standards, both as  
searchable text and electronic images of the originals. The majority  
of these have been edited and annotated here for the first time with  
more than 4,900 original editorial notes.

This website also provides the largest collection of Darwin's private  
papers and manuscripts ever published: c. 20,000 items across c.  
100,000 images, thanks primarily to the kind permission of Cambridge  
University Library."
