Exhibit: Darwin@the Library

Darwin@the Library, a new exhibit in the lobby of the History of Science Collections, opens today in recognition of the Evolution Conference at OU (beginning June 17th).

Darwin2009-logo.jpgA complete set of first editions of printed books by Charles Darwin were displayed for public viewing throughout the fall of 2009 in Darwin@the Museum, a joint exhibition with the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. With this Darwin@the Library special exhibition, we are pleased to again make the Darwin holdings available to the public.

To view all of Darwin’s printed volumes in their first editions yields an unforgettable impression of the breadth and beauty of Darwin’s work.
