The Story of Darwin's ShipBook - 1995 | 1st ed
After having twice been driven back by heavy south-west gales, His Majesty's Ship Beagle, a ten-gun brig, under the command of Captain Fitzroy, sailed from Devonport on the 27th of December, 1813. These words open Darwin's story of his historical voyage in the Beagle. Darwin's views and his books are well known but very little is known of the ship that circumnavigated the world.
