Complete Darwin Works Online

The great British scientist's works along with 150 ancillary texts have been put online. There are about 50,000 searchable text pages and 40,000 images online. This represents 50% of the collection with the remainder to be posted by 2009. One interesting piece:
Among the unique collection is the notebook used during the Beagle voyage, which would later forge his scientific arguments. It was stolen in the 1980s, but Darwin's great-great-grandson hopes that the publication online, thanks to a transcription from a microfilm copy made two decades earlier, will persuade whoever has it to return it.
