Description du produit

Revue de presse

Many people who have planned to read The Voyage of the Beagle and been deterred by its length and scientific aspects will find the answer here in a carefully and skillfully abridged edition, cut to half the length, which gives the continuity of text, Darwin's own words, and the observations and episodes that make it memorable as a human document. Here is a classic, the record of an enquiring mind seeking scientific truth. Here is evident the growth of the man. An introductory biography places the importance of this trip in Darwin's life; introductory bits for each chapter provide an analysis of the voyage and its scientific meaning along with the actual text. This work is significant in view of additional material available in the last 35 years, much of it Darwin's own writings, but hitherto unpublished in book form. A bibliography provides not only original sources but additional material for study. --Kirkus Reviews --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Voyage of the Beagle, first published in 1839, is Charles Darwin's journal of his experiences as a naturalist on a scientific data-gathering expedition that began in December of 1831, when Darwin was only 22, and ended in October of 1836. Traveling aboard the HMS Beagle under the command of Captain Robert Fitzroy, the ship left England for South America and westward into the Pacific to the Galapagos Islands, Tahiti, Australia, and New Zealand. Throughout the journey Darwin kept a detailed record of the flora and fauna, and collected a host of specimens for further study in England. Of note is that data gathered on the voyage would prove critical to his development of the theory of evolution. In this edited and abridged edition, Millicent Selsam has done a masterful job of culling some of the minutiae of the voyage (always indicating where editorial cuts were made), while retaining the important details and the warm feel of Darwin's account, making the book a joy to read. The text is further enhanced by Selsam's biographical sketch of the young Darwin, her introductions to each chapter, and the maps and line drawings of artist Anthony Ravielli. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Remember this says "Journal" and that is what it is. It is his first parson adventures on and off the Beagle. He even includes stories about the people on the ship, the ship's life, and maintenance. He is always going ashore and venturing beyond the ship charter to go where no Englishman has gone before. He makes friends with tyrants and the down trodden. Once to get an animal to come to him, he lay on his back and waved his arms and legs in the air. What ever you do, do not turn your back on him. He is always knocking something on the head and taking it back for study. It is fun trying to match the old names for places with the new.

Being invited in your early twenties to take part in a 5-year journey around the world must have felt like a tremendous recognition. Charles Darwin made the most of such a glorious opportunity. In this book you see him exploring and discovering previously unknown parts of South America, among them the famed Galapagos Islands,thereby producing one of the most fascinating travel writings I have ever read. But above all you see a genius at work, always investigating, tinkering and cogitating with an unsatiable curiosity. This seminal contribution to various sciences is groundbreaking in itself. Don't expect a treaty on evolution though. That will come much later in his life. But in hindsight the voyage aboard the Beagle forshadowed the most exciting discovery of the XIXth century.

livre anglophone broché souple petit format papier recyclé réédition de 1997 du journal de voyage de Darwin sur le Beagle; il est toujours intéressant d'avoir ce texte chez soi même si il serait peut-être plus agréable de l'avoir dans une édition illustrée plus luxueuse pour bibliothèque que celle-ci vraiment basique

Bonne édition écrite, même s'il s'agit d'une édition compacte et concise de l'original, elle dispose de très peu d'images hélas.
Good edition, even if it is a concise and compact edition of the original, it has very few pictures, unfortunately.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Darwin's voyage of discovery 7 décembre 2013
Par Joanna D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This would be one of the most influential books I've read. As a biology student in high school, I read "Voyage of the Beagle" and "Origin of the Species." The latter is rather dry and tough going, especially for a high school student, but "Voyage" is a travel journal of discover. Darwin sailed on the "Beagle" with Captain FitzRoy and discovered a new world of plants and animals and geography so different, so exciting that his journal conveys his wonder and delight. So this is the most readable of Darwin's writings.

I was influenced enough by this book to actually study zoology as my major in university, and though eventually I took a career in another scientific field, I retained my love of the natural world. Eventually almost a half century after reading "Voyage", I was able to visit Patagonia and actually see a house where Darwin lived, and see some of the animals and plants that he found so intriguing. They ARE intriguing. I couldn't see enough of it.

Not all the book is uplifting; the sad story of the Fuegan natives who were despised (and ultimately murdered even into the Twentieth Century) is the part of the book I find so disturbing. The natives were resourceful and able to live in the harshest environment. Their tools (harpoons, spears, canoes) are a marvel of invention. But Darwin calls them "miserable, degraded savages." No one who sees their artifacts now could even conceive of that. The fact that only one living person of one of the major seven groups of canoe peoples is even alive today is utterly depressing and tragic.

If you love nature and natural history, this is a must-read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Really good read. 29 décembre 2016

I must admit that I was quite surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. Having no preconceived notions, I choose this book as part of a reading challenge and was very impressed with Darwin's descriptions of his travels and also his disdain of slavery and the mistreatment of slaves in the countries he visited. Excellent observations not just of flora and fauna but of man's influence on nature.

A classic adventure story that led to one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time. Our understand of life and biology has completely changed and continues to change as a result of this adventure and Darwin'sbrilliance. A must read. The illustrations supplement the text bringing it alive.

Outstanding historical record. Very interesting and well written. Provides a good primer to understand how Darwin arrived at his Theory of
Evolution. For travelers to South America it provides a good comparison to current geopolitical conditions and those that existed at that time.
He spends a good part of the book describing the social and political situations that existed and not just his observations of the natural world
as you would expect.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Darwin's Exciting Adventure as a Young Scientist 31 mai 2014
Par mazdee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was surprised at how easy this is to read! I was particularly interested in Tierra del Fuego and the Falkland Islands, having just returned from a trip to that area. Also, I am reading another book about the area, "The Uttermost Part of the Earth", written by a man born there in the mid 1800s, son of a missionary. It has been interesting, reading teh books together, because both authors share many experiences, but with often differing opinions. Darwin's descriptions of the geography and the wildlife are wonderful. My one complaint (and it's a big one) is that this is supposed to be the "Illustrated Edition" and there is not one illustration in the e-book. Still, I have really enjoyed the book, and encourage others to try it.
