On the Origin of Species
Happy birthday to 2 great historical figures. Darwin and Lincoln! They both would be 200 years old if they were alive. Here is a portrait of Darwin with a first edition of On The Origin Of Species, published in 1859! In case you're curious how I got access to something like that, I work in a library that owns many rare books and it was on display today in honor of Darwin's 200th birthday. Very cool!
UPDATE: I modified the caption - I originally thought that Lincoln was born in a different year, oops!
