Catalogue Note

The first appearance in its own right of Darwin's own account of the voyage of the Beagle. After publication as the third volume of Fitzroy's Narrative (see previous lot) Darwin's contribution was almost immediately published separately in the present form, bound from the same sheets but with new preliminaries.
