Title: The Voyage of the Beagle. Journal of Researchers Into the Natural History and Geology of The Countries Visited During the Voyage of HMS Beagle Round the World, Under the Command of Captain Fitz Roy
Description: Great Britain, Wordsworth Classics of World Literature, 1997. 1st Wordsworth Edition, Binding: Soft Cover, Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall Octavo 9781853264764 Paperback Paperback. The Voyage of the Beagle. With an Introduction by David Amigoni. Charles Darwin's travels around the world as an independent naturalist on HMS Beagle between 1831 and 1836 impressed upon him a sense of the natural world's beatury and sublimity which language could barely capture. Words, he said, were inadequate to convey to those who have not visited the inter-tropical regions, the sensation of delight which the mind experiences. Yet in a travel journal which takes the reader from the coasts and interiors of South America to South Sea islands, Darwin's descriptive powers are constantly challenged, but never once overcome. In addition, this book displays Darwin's powerful, speculative mind at work, posing searching questions about the complex relation between the Earth's structure, animal forms, anthropology and the origins of life itself. 480 pp.
