Darwin Online: Browse Darwin's Papers

The Darwin Online project has now made all of Darwin's papers from the Cambridge University Library, including drafts of chapters from "On the Origin of Species" available to the public online! They have images of the original writing including all his scribbling in margins, and transcriptions to make them readable. For example, it has this page from one of his notebooks, which induced shivers in my spine when I was able to actually see it (in the cellulose, so to speak) a couple of years ago when we visited the Darwin Exhibit at AMNH:
