A 1859 first edition of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life, is up for grabs at Christie's December 6 Fine Printed Books sale. As might be expected the book has a formidable estimate of $100,00-150,000.

A formidable estimate indeed! I'm surprised this is not part of a British museum collection - although they probably have several copies already.
