The Voyage of the Beagle is a science book written by Charles Darwin in 1839.

We have before us the diary of a 19th century naturalist, Charles Darwin, in which he describes his years of travelling the world to document species and their relationship with the environment.

Darwin notes how species adapt to their environment, depending on the availability of resources. He finds evidence of past extinct animals through fossils and, in general, explains life on our planet.

Thus, Darwin deals with subjects such as geology, zoology and botany in great detail. It covers everything from the largest species to the smallest invertebrates and marine plankton.

In addition, he describes the culture and society of the time through his interactions with both the indigenous and colonising populations living in those places.

This edition of The Voyage of the Beagle is based on D. Appleton and Company edition.

"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. The object of the expedition was to complete the survey of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, commenced under Captain King in 1826 to 1830,—to survey the shores of Chile, Peru, and of some islands in the Pacific—and to carry a chain of chronometrical measurements round the World".
