Lightbinders has recently finished the second edition of _The
Darwin Multimedia CD-ROM_, (list price $49.95, ISBN:
1-889175-01-3). This remarkable disk is an integrated compilation of the
major works of Charles Darwin:  _The Origin of Species_, _The Voyage
of the Beagle_, _The Descent of Man_, _The Expression of Emotion in Man and
Animals_, The monograph on the Cirripedia, and _The Structure and
Distribution of Coral Reefs_. It also contains a selection of
many of the lesser-known works, which can be difficult for even the most
devoted Darwinian to obtain. Never before have these rare titles been
presented together, let alone integrated by extensive cross-reference

Also included is the acclaimed _Triumph of the Darwinian
Method_, written by renowned Darwin expert (and ISHPSSB member)
Dr. Michael T. Ghiselin, and a video in which Sir David Attenborough
narrates an appeal for the restoration and preservation of Down House,
Darwin's residence.

The _Darwin 2nd Edition CD-ROM_ uses the multi-platform
DynaText interface, which has of extensive hyperlinks and advanced
multimedia features. The sounds of many animals, including the birds of
the Galapagos, are accessible through audio links. The maps and drawings
of the original publications have been faithfully retained, enhanced by
the beautiful illustrations of the original specimens collected by Darwin
during his historic voyage.  A description of the disc can be seen at the
