2009 marked the bi-centenary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of his ground-breaking publication On the Origin of Species (1859). The Voyage of the Beagle brings together, for the first time, in a single volume a range of topics on the great voyages of discovery made by the Beagle.
They include the career history of the vessel, including designs and plans, biographies on Darwin and Captain Robert Fitzroy and the work of the various artists who accompanied the voyages. Illustrated with artworks, sketches and plans, extracts from journals and diaries, portraits and caricatures, artefacts and photographs, James Taylor has woven together all the various strands of the Beagle story to produce a thoroughly engaging and highly informative read that is sure to appeal to anyone from scientists to art lovers and maritime historians.
It was published in advance of the two key Darwin 200 anniversaries and related events. It features an authoritative author who speaks regularly on Darwin and the Beagle and is presented as a travel journal.
