Beschreibung:

3 vols in four (vol 2 having a separate Appendix), 8vo (235 x 145 mm), pp xxviii [iv] 1-559, 556-597 [recte 601]; xiv [ii] 694 [2]; viii 352; xiv 629 [609]-615, with 8 engraved folding maps and charts (loosely inserted in pockets at the front of each volume, as issued, the ribbon for extracting the charts still present in each pocket), 48 plates and charts, and 6 text illustrations; some slight foxing to plates, a few of the charts split at folds, overall a very good copy in original cloth, spines somewhat faded, minor repairs to spines but intact in its original binding, in morocco-backed boxes. £110,000First edition, an extraordinary presentation copy inscribed by the Commander of the Beagle Robert FitzRoy (see below), the man who chose Darwin to accompany him on the epochal voyage. This work is the complete narrative of 'one of the most famous scientific expeditions in history' (DSB). The third volume comprises Darwin's own journal of his voyage in the Beagle, which is the first issue of his first published book. 'The voyage of the Beagle has been by far the most important event in my life, and has determined my whole career' (Charles Darwin, Life and Letters I p 61).Darwin's Journal of researches, as it became known, was his first formal publication and a classic of natural history travel narrative. It was the most important scientific voyage ever undertaken, for it gave impetus and direction to all of Darwin's later researches. 'The five years of the voyage were the most important event in Darwin's intellectual life and in the history of biological science. Darwin sailed with no formal scientific training. He returned a hard-headed man of science, knowing the importance of evidence, almost convinced that species had not always been as they were since the creation but had undergone change. He also developed doubts of the value of the Scriptures as a trustworthy guide to the history of the earth and of man, with the result that he gradually became an agnostic. The experiences of his five years in the Beagle, how he dealt with them, and what they led to, built up into a process of epoch-making importance in the history of thought' (Gavin de Beer in DSB).Volume I of the Narrative concerns the initial surveying expedition, 1826-30, under Philip Parker King in the Adventure, during which FitzRoy succeeded Pringle Stokes as commander of the accompanying Beagle. Volume II describes FitzRoy's continuation and completion of the survey with the Beagle alone, ending in 1836. 'The surveys he carried out in South American waters established FitzRoy as a first-rate hydrographer and won for him the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society (1837). Because his marine surveys were accurate to such a high degree they are still used as the foundation for a number of charts of that area' (DSB).Provenance: inscribed and signed on the half-title by the Captain of the Beagle, Robert FitzRoy, to 'Dr. Lee, LL.D., a tribute of esteem and respect from Robt. FitzRoy, Sept. 19th, 1856.' Also inscribed by Lee on the front pastedown, 'John Lee, Hartwell, a present from the accomplished author, 22 September 1856', with Lee's armorial bookplate on front pastedown in all volsAn extraordinary presentation copy connecting two exceptional Victorians. Besides their other formidable accomplishments, they were both pioneer meteorologists, and this was probably the reason for the gift of these volumes.Robert FitzRoy (1805-1865) commander of the Beagle on its second voyage, chose Charles Darwin to accompany him on what became the most famous scientific expedition ever undertaken. Following completion of the voyage in 1835, FitzRoy prepared these volumes for publication. In 1843 he was appointed to the governorship of New Zealand, returning to England in 1845; in 1857 he became Rear Admiral and in 1863 Vice Admiral.'In the years of his retirement, Fitzroy turned his attention to the emerging science of meteorology and devoted all of his energies to the advanceme.
