Darwin on Disc

If you have $20,000 in spare change, you might be able to pick up an original edition of Charles Darwin's Zoology of the Beagle. Or, for just under $2,000, you can likely get your hands on an elegant limited-edition facsimile. Better yet, get The Darwin Multimedia CD-ROM, which contains the complete text and all color plates from Zoology, plus several of the great man's better-known works, including Voyage of the Beagle-after all these years still one of the great travel tales. Do you know when (and where) Darwin first used the word "evolution"? You will, a few seconds after installing this CD. Go out and buy a good color printer with the money you saved.
