about

Enjoy the best-selling memoir of Charles Darwin's journey of discovery aboard the HMSBeagle--now fully illustrated for the first time.

The Voyage of the Beagleis Darwin's fascinating account of his groundbreaking sea voyage that led to his writingOn the Origin of Species.

When the HMSBeaglesailed out of Devonport on December 27, 1831, Charles Darwin was only twenty-two and setting off on the voyage of a lifetime. His journal reveals him to be a naturalist making patient observations concerning geology and natural history as well as people, places, and events. He witnessed and visited volcanoes in the Galapagos, saw the Gossamer spider of Patagonia, sailed through the Australasian coral reefs, and recorded the brilliance of the firefly--these recollections are found in these extraordinary writings. The insights made on the five-year voyage set in motion the intellectual currents that led to the most controversial book of the Victorian age:On the Origin of Species. An introduction on the background to Darwin's work, as well as notes, maps, appendices, and an essay on scientific geology and the Bible by Robert FitzRoy, Darwin's friend and captain of theBeagle, provide context for this incredible story.

This volume is the first fully illustrated edition of Darwin's journal and includes excerpts ofOn the Origin of Speciesso the reader can connect the author's journey with his discovery that made him famous.
