This is a history of the 10-gun brig and survey ship, HMS Beagle. It became famous for her survey voyages under Commander Robert Fitzroy, especially once Charles Darwin, a passenger on the second expedition, wrote the On the Origin of Species, which was based on studies undertaken during the voyage.
As part of the renowned Anatomy of the Ship series, this book provides the finest documentation of the Bellona, with a complete set of superb line drawings, supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history.
