My Year of Darwin: 7/30/2014 Selling the Origin of Species

 Charles Darwin

"The first small edition of 1250 copies was sold on the first day of publication, and a second edition of 3000 copies soon afterwards. Sixteen thousand copies have now (1876) been sold in England; and considering how stiff a book it is, this is a large sale" Charles Darwin, Autobiography

Not bad Chuck! I would call it the most important book in ecology. Second would be MacArthur and Wilson's Theory of Island Biogeography.
