Título: Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of His ...

Editorial: London: Henry Colburn, 1839

Año de publicación: 1839

Edición: 1st Edition


Octavo (233 × 140 mm) 3 volumes in 4 (vols. I–III and Appendix to vol. II). Attractive modern green half calf to style, double red morocco lettering pieces, flat bands reeded in gilt, repeated wave pallet in blind filling the compartments, marbled sides, tan endpapers. A wide-margined and generally clean set, some marginal foxing, particularly to the plates, which show off-set to the tissue-guards as usual, characteristic splits to the maps professionally restored with Japanese tissue, overall a very good and handsomely presented set. 9 folding engraved maps by J. Gardner and J. and C. Walker; 47 etched plates after P. King, A. Earle, C. Martens, R. Fitzroy and others by T. Landseer, S. Bull, T. Prior and others. First edition. "The five years of the voyage were the most important event in Darwin's intellectual life and in the history of biological science" (DSB). Vol. I contains King's account of the expedition in the Adventure made between 1826 and 1830, surveying the coasts of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. In Vol. II (and its appendix volume) Capt. Fitzroy described the narrative of the Beagle's second voyage, between 1831 and 1836 to South America, the Galapagos Islands, Tahiti, New Zealand and Australia and other countries. In this set, the Darwin volume, "Journal and Remarks 1832-1836", is the first issue, printed before the end of January 1839, the month he was elected to the Royal Society, and so without the letters F.R.S. after his name on the second title. Freeman 10; Hill I, pp. 104–5; Sabin 37826. N° de ref. de la librería 80586
