Charles Darwin’s lost notebooks on evolution returned to Cambridge library two decades after they disappeared

  • Naturalist’s books were returned wrapped in plastic film, in their original archive box within a pink gift bag with the message: ‘Librarian, Happy Easter, X’
  • Notebooks detailing Darwin’s theories of evolution and natural selection were discovered missing during a routine check in January 2001
