1,200 letters between Charles Darwin and Joseph Hooker, 300 of which have not been published before, are being made available in more than 5,000 images by Cambridge’s Digital Library (http://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/). Their decades of correspondence include Darwin’s most famous letter, where he first reveals not only that he thinks species change, but also that he has worked out a completely new theory as to how.

“No single set of letters was more important to Darwin, or is more important now, than those exchanged with Hooker over 40 years.” — Alison Pearn
