From the Publisher"Gordon Chancellor and John Van Wyhe are to be thanked for doing this onerous job and doing it so carefully and thoughtfully be providing nice introductions to the notebooks and careful editorial annotations throughout."
Michael Ruse, The Quarterly Review of Biology
"The transcriptions of the notebooks will excite naturalists and historians of science. Recommended."
J.S. Schwartz, Choice Magazine
"This impressive book comes with a detailed chronology indicating where Darwin was for about every day between 1832 and 1836, plus appendixes, bibliography, and a detailed index. All in all, this hefty Charles Darwin’s Notebooks from the Voyage of the ‘Beagle’ is a meticulously edited piece, for advanced scholars in natural sciences, history of science, palaeontology, and anthropology. It provides some interesting dimensions about how scientific observation was made two centuries ago."
Yves Laberge, PaleoAnthropology
