A feast of reading today for anyone interested in old diaries, journals, or
manuscripts - the so far unpublished papers of the Charles Darwin archive
have gone on line today, to be read completely free - another great gift to
the world via the Internet.
His personal journals are here (including a list of "do I marry? Vs "do I not
marry? - On the pro side, he concludes that it is better to marry than to get
a dog!), but the manuscript that I will be browsing first is his wife, Emma Darwin's
Recipe Book (ms number DAR 214 if the links play up)
You can reach the whole collection here - but beware - vast quantities of
time may be consumed once you start to browse!
