Journal of researches into the natural history & geology of the countries visited during the voyage of H.M.S. Beagle under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N by Charles Darwin( Book )
56 editions published between 1845 and 2009 in English and held by 710 libraries worldwide
"This volume contains, in the form of a journal, a history of our voyage, and a sketch of those observations in Natural History and Geology, which I think will possess some interest for the general reader. I have in this edition largely condensed and corrected some parts, and have added a little to others, in order to render the volume more fitted for popular reading; but I trust that naturalists will remember, that they must refer for details to the larger publications, which comprise the scientific results of the Expedition. The Zoology of the Voyage of the Beagle includes an account of the Fossil Mammalia, by Professor Owen; of the Living Mammalia, by Mr. Waterhouse; of the Birds, by Mr. Gould; of the Fish, by the Rev. L. Jenyns; and of the Reptiles, by Mr. Bell. I have appended to the descriptions of each species an account of its habits and range. I intend hereafter to describe, in a set of papers, some of the marine invertebrate animals collected during the voyage"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

HMS Beagle has entered the collective imagination as the ship that carried Charles Darwin to the Galapagos, triggering his later work on the theory of natural selection. However, the Beagle also played a vital role in the development of modern hydrography, cartography and meteorology in both the voyage of 1831-36 and an earlier one of 1826-30. The work of the Beagle under her captain, Robert FitzRoy, was to chart South American coastlines, many of which had not previously been mapped, and to build a global chain of meridian distances. On this voyage, FitzRoy also pioneered the use of Francis Beaufort's new system for identifying wind force, the basis of the modern Beaufort scale. FitzRoy's unofficial goal on this voyage was to return three Fuegians to their native shores and establish a Protestant mission in the desolate, southern fringes of the continent. It was a pivotal experience of civilization and savagery for both Darwin and FitzRoy. Darwin and FitzRoy's separate accounts of the voyage were published in the four-volume Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle Between the Years 1826 and 1836 (1839). Darwin's version has never been out of print. In contrast, this set presents the first critical edition of the remaining texts from 1839: FitzRoy's account of the second voyage, his detailed appendices and the account of the 1826-30 voyage by Phillip Parker King, captain of HMS Adventure. Together they give an unparalleled example of British scientific exploration
The Beagle record : selections from the original pictorial records and written accounts of the voyage of H.M.S. Beagle by Charles Darwin( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
This 1979 volume gathers together an account of the voyage of H.M.S. Beagle round the world in 1831-1836 in the words of the participants as recorded at the time--from the letters of Darwin and Captain FitzRoy, Darwin's diary, and the books about the voyage published by Darwin and FitzRoy in 1839. It is illustrated by the pencil drawings and watercolors made by the Beagle's official artist, Conrad Martens, as well as pictures made on board by other members of the crew. The bulk of the illustrations were previously unpublished, as were the letters written by FitzRoy and Martens. Most of the other written sources were out of print.--From publisher description
