The origin of species / A origem das Espécies
Special edition with hardcover in fabric and serigraphy, and painted corners.
The origin of species through natural selection or The preservation of the races favored in the struggle for life
Published in 1859, The Origin of Species, by the English naturalist Charles Darwin, has forever changed the way humans understand themselves and the world around them. Based on the original text, with translation and presentation by USP professor of philosophy, Pedro Paulo Pimenta, this edition also brings the articles that announced the theory of natural selection, the most important additions to later editions and the first reactions of the scientific world to the work – making this the most complete edition ever published in Portuguese.
With two-color printing, the volume has over thirty watercolors of plants and animals illustrated by Alex Cerveny.
