The Voyage of the Beagle by James Taylor brings together, for the first time in a single volume, the circumstances that set the Beagle voyage in motion and the characters who circumnavigated the world together. Chapters include the career history of the Beagle, including cabin layouts and plans, biographies on Darwin and Captain Robert Fitzroy, and the work of the crewmembers and artists who accompanied the survey voyage.

Beautifully illustrated with artworks, sketches and charts that were produced during and after the voyage by those onboard, and enriched with first-hand accounts from personal diaries and letters, James Taylor has woven together all the various strands of the Beagle story to produce a thoroughly engaging and highly informative read, which will appeal to scientists, art lovers, maritime historians, and anyone with a sense of adventure.
