Rare Darwin Book Found In Guest Bathroom
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Charles Darwin's revolutionary book �On the Origin of Species� turns 150 tomorrow. It's the book where Darwin introduced the theory of natural selection and survival of the fittest. To mark this publishing milestone, Christie's will be auctioning off a recently discovered treasure: a rare first edition. It had been surviving, but apparently not evolving, on a shelf in the guest bathroom of a family in Oxford, England.
It's MORNING EDITION.
