RR Auctions Charles Darwin Signed Carte-de-Visite Portrait

Original 2.5 x 4 carte-de-visite portrait of Darwin by Elliott & Fry,circa 1874,signed below the image in black ink,“Ch. Darwin.” Printed text on the reverse reads: “Elliot & Fry,55,Baker Street,Portman Square. W.” In fine condition,with subtle silvering to darker areas of the image,a couple of trivial corner tip dings,and some light mounting remnants to the reverse; all of these flaws are mentioned for the strictest of accuracy and in no way distract from the essentially pristine image quality. In 1874,Darwin published the second—and finally complete—edition of his second book on evolutionary theory,The Descent of Man. This exceptionally rare pose features Darwin with his arms crossed—cartes-de-visite typically seen from this sitting with Elliott & Fry are a slightly different pose where his arms are not visible. This is a perfect example of one of a handful of known signed Darwin cartes-de-visite. RR Auction COA.

Pretty much, a species of birds evolved to their surroundings.. longer beaks to reach further in the tree holes to get food...
Darwin's finches (also known as the Galápagos finches or as Geospizinae) are a group of about 15 species of passerine birds.[1] It is still not clear which bird family they belong to, but they are not related to the true finches. They were first collected by Charles Darwin on the Galápagos Islands during the second voyage of the Beagle. All are found only on the Galápagos Islands, except the Cocos Island Finch from Cocos Island.
The term Darwin's Finches was first applied by Percy Lowe in 1936, and popularised in 1947 by David Lack in his book Darwin's Finches
