First illustrated edition of one of the most famous books on evolution!

 

During the 19th-century, few scientists and biologists had as significant and long-lasting impact on scientific discovery as Charles Darwin. His contributions to the science of evolution with natural selection, survival of the fittest, and biological explanation have cemented him as a cornerstone in the world of biology and natural science.

 

From 1831 to 1836, Charles Darwin was a part of the second voyage of the HMS Beagle, a voyage that sought natural science treasures and geological finds. While on the voyage, Darwin kept a journal which would later become published as ‘The Voyage of the Beagle’. He explored the South American land, making theories, finding fossils of extinct animals, and made detailed observations of plants and animals. This voyage, and subsequent book, would eventually lead to his theories of evolution.

 

This 1890 first illustrated edition includes over 100 engravings by R.T. Pritchett with two-fold out maps!
