Rare Darwin book to be auctioned





A first edition of Charles Darwin's seminal work On The Origin Of Species is to be sold at auction in Edinburgh after being unearthed at a family home.

The book, which was published 150 years ago, transformed the science world with its theories on evolution and natural selection.

Only 1,250 were produced in its first print run back in 1859.
