Requests to reproduce manuscripts must be sent to the owner of the manuscript, not to Darwin Online. For those belonging to Cambridge University Library (i.e. those items named CUL-DAR or DAR...) contact Imaging Services mss@lib.cam.ac.uk. See the Cambridge University Library Order Form for Digital Images.

If a work within the scope of Darwin Online is not listed here it is either in progress, a copy of the work has yet to be acquired or reproduction permission could not be obtained. Please help us complete the online collection. See our list of works still needed.

See also the bibliography of works cited in Darwin Online, i.e. in the editorial notes etc.

There are also plans to include portraits and caricatures of Darwin and images of Beagle specimens and other objects.

Suggestions and contributions are warmly invited.

* Most of these descriptions are based on the 1960 Handlist of Darwin papers at the University Library Cambridge. These are, for the most part, greatly abbreviated descriptions of an entire DAR volume, necessarily omitting mention of many items, here intended to serve as an aide memoire. Volumes containing only correspondence are omitted from this list. Darwin's correspondence is recorded in the Calendar of the Correspondence of Charles Darwin.

All of the items within each DAR volume are individually itemized in the manuscript catalogue. Thusfar about 11,000 manuscript images have been individually named according to the catalogue. Therefore many items are currently available only by browsing through their respective volume in the list above. We are particularly grateful to Sue Asscher and also to Katie Tabb and Arthur Koehl for renaming thousands of these images.
