The narrative of the Beagle voyage, 1831-1836 by Katharine Anderson( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
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
Geological observations on South America being the third part of the geology of the voyage of the Beagle, under the command of Capt. Fitzroy, R.N. during the years 1832 to 1836 by Charles Darwin( Book )
2 editions published in 1851 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
First published in 1846, Darwin's Geological Observations made up the third part of his memoir of his voyage on the Beagle during the years 1832-1836. While the first part (1842) focused on the structure and distribution of coral reefs and the second (1844) described the volcanic islands visited during the voyage, this third instalment is devoted exclusively to South America, where Darwin spent the longest period of the expedition. It discusses South America's geological and seismic history, the mineral content of lava and granite, and the deformation of metamorphic rock. Separate chapters cover different geographical areas, and topics include the formation of the East and West Coasts and the pampas, the plains and valleys of Chile, and the structure of the Cordillera. Geological Observations also includes detailed maps of South America and sketches of the terrain
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 27 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
