This highly illustrated collection of short essays provides a critical assessment of Darwin both as a person and a scientist, and provides a factual and engaging account of the collections held at Cambridge University. Giving a sense of Darwin's youth and energy at the time of the Beagle voyage, and portraying his life and work in the context of the lives and work of others, including his family, this is an engaging account of the significance of Darwin's observations for his contemporaries and how his ideas inform modern science.
