Darwin Letters Online

Nearly 5000 letters written by Charles Darwin are now available online according to The BBC News. The Cambridge University Library Darwin Correspondence project also includes summaries of a further 9,000 letters, written from the age of 12.

Letters were absolutely essential to what Darwin was doing," says Dr Alison Pearn, co-director of the Darwin Correspondence project. "This is how he gathered data, how he gathered ideas, how he discussed ideas."
