This page was never published, it is simply Darwin’s thoughts on paper as they happened. It is thanks to the small insights like this one that contributed to the development of one of the greatest scientific theories man has yet dreamed of.
The perfect inspiration for students, teachers & anybody with a keen interest in science. This little known piece will keep your guests scratching their heads!
If you would like the teared edges adjusted, just let us know; we make each one to order so we can make it how you want!
