In 1831, Charles Darwin embarked on an expedition that, in his own words, determined my whole career. The Voyage of the Beagle chronicles his five-year journey around the world and especially the coastal waters of South America as a naturalist on the H.M.S. Beagle. While traveling through these unexplored countries collecting specimens, Darwin began to formulate the theories of evolution and natural selection realized in his master work, The Origin of Species. Travel memoir and scientific primer alike, The Voyage of the Beagle is a lively and accessible introduction to the mind of one of history's most influential thinkers.… (altro)

Enjoy the best-selling memoir of Charles Darwin's journey of discovery aboard the HMS Beagle--now fully illustrated for the first time. The Voyage of the Beagle is Darwin's fascinating account of his groundbreaking sea voyage that led to his writing On the Origin of Species. When the HMS Beagle sailed 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 the Beagle, provide context for this incredible story. This volume is the first fully illustrated edition of Darwin's journal and includes excerpts of On the Origin of Species so the reader can connect the author's journey with his discovery that made him famous.

"... into the Natural History and Geology of the countries visited during the voyage of H.M.S. Beagle round the world, under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy R.N." ( )

This Folio Society edition of The Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle reprints the 1960 third edition of Charles Darwin’s Journal of Researches into the Natural History and Geology of the Countries Visited during the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle Round the World under Captain Fitz Roy, R.N.. Darwin titled the first edition Journal of Researches into the Geology and Natural History of the Various Countries Visited by H.M.S. Beagle under the Command of Captain Fitz Roy, R.N., from 1832 to 1836 and published it in 1839 as the third volume in a series titled, Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of His Majesty’s Ships Adventure and Beagle. Captain Robert FitzRoy’s account primarily focused on the actions of the ship and crew as well as hydrographical research while Darwin focused on geology and natural history. Darwin based his account on his journals and his day books, with the first edition selling well enough that his publisher printed a second edition as a standalone from the other volumes in the first edition. Darwin began to explore his ideas about evolution in the course of the second edition, clarifying some language and demonstrating the influence of Charles Lyell’s geological theories, which Darwin read in Lyell’s Principles of Geology (1830-1833). Darwin’s The Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle is not only an interesting work for the history of science, but offers a glimpse into naval life, exploration, and more in the 1830s. It’s somewhat dry compared to modern popular science writing, but Darwin has a great felicity with language at times plus it’s worth reading just to understand his thought process as he began developing his theory of evolution. This Folio Society edition features period illustrations and matches their editions of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, The Descent of Man, and The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.

Tja, weinig van te zeggen. Dit kon me totaal niet boeien. 1 ster voor de moeite. ( )

Charles Darwin wrote this diary/journal while on board the HMS Beagle as the naturalist of the ship. It's an interesting account of his journey around the world. Most of his descriptions of the inhabitants aren't very flattering, except when it came to Tahiti. Everywhere else in these places people inhabited hovels and had bad manners and all sorts of really terrible things to say. He knows a lot about plants and animals, and recites the genus and family names of pretty much everything he finds.

I can accept his superiority complex since he comes from a time where that sort of thing was acceptable, but I can't accept his overuse of commas. I don't know why, but he puts commas almost everywhere, and I can't find any rhyme or reason for this. It is terribly annoying to read it like that, though I suppose I can just say "unnecessary comma" in a Strongbad Voice whenever it comes up...

In any case, this journal is a fascinating study of nature and man. You can tell that at the end of the book he just wants to go home, though this was a pivotal point in Darwin's life. ( )

[1st edn., 1839:]
Jan. 16th, 1832.—The neighbourhood of Porto Praya, viewed from the sea, wears a desolate aspect. The volcanic fire of past ages, and the scorching heat of a tropical sun, have in most places rendered the soil sterile and unfit for vegetation. 

[2nd end., 1845:]
After having been twice driven back by heavy southwestern gales, Her Majesty's ship Beagle, a ten-gun brig, under the command of Captain Fitz Roy, R. N., sailed from Devonport on the 27th of December, 1831.

Although The Voyage of the Beagle is the most common title in English, there are others; the work was published by Darwin in 1839 as Journal and Remarks, and is also known as Darwin's Journal of Researches.
