Artist's Description

A swan orchid Cycnoches" in gilt on the front cover of the first edition (plum, ribbed) of "On the Various Contrivances by which Orchids are fertilised by Insects and the good effects of intercrossing" by Charles Darwin (John Murray 1862). This was the only Murray edition of Darwin not to have the standard drab green covers, and it made an unfortunate mistake. The orchid is in fact illustrated upside-down - an understandable mistake by the publisher given that cycnoches orchid flowers always appear to be "upside-down" in the wild. Darwin, who always strove for perfection in detail, would have hated it but this was not part of the proof returned to him, and the second edition was in the standard green with no gilded decoration. His orchid book was the first part of his effort to publish in more detail the proofs of his "Origin of Species" 1859 which had been only an abstract of a much larger intended work."

About Paul D Stewart

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
