Darwin on the Web

All of Darwin’s writings, from his seminal Origin of Species and Descent of Man to the jottings in the notebook he carried around with him on The Beagle, have been published on the World Wide Web. http://darwin-online.org.uk/
It’s an extremely functional site, where you can select your favourite mode of reading, with or without images. Slight minuses are that the site has a slightly dated look, and it doesn’t offer easier-to-read .pdf or .lit versions of the books for download. But these are minor in comparison with the wealth of information available on the site, and the 15 million hits the website has received since it came into being prove it.
