Box set of Darwin's classics
I have been looking near and far for a nice semi-collector's edition box set of Darwin's classics: On the Origin of Species, The Descent of Man, The Voyage of the Beagle and any others (The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals, The Variation of Plants and Animals Under Domestication, etc.). Does anyone know where I could find such? I know E.O. Wilson wrote an introduction for a similar type thing, but if I remember correctly all of the books had been bound together. I'm looking for separate books, but in a collection. Any help is much appreciated.

Google is your friend. I searched "darwin box set -awards". Many hits.

I had heard of the Easton collection, but I'm afraid it may be slightly nicer than what I had in mind. I was a set that will last me, but I'm also on a college budget haha.

If you're college age, you may not be old enough to remember a time when there used to be Used Bookstores. Tongue

If there are any around, you may want to start checking them out. The right store will even help track down the books you want. But hurry! I once had my eye on a set of Great Books at a local used bookstore and before I ever had a chance to pull the trigger on making the purchase, the store closed down. Sad

There is a cheap version that has all of his more noteworthy works in one ginormous book. I honestly don't remember the name of it. I saw it at a local bookstore a few weeks ago. I'll let you know the title if I run across it again.

I actually was avoiding a ginormous volume as I tend to feel overwhelmed sometimes when breaking into things like that. I may have to just result to buying them separately until I can afford a nice collection such as the Easton collection.
