Illustrations in the Beagle Library

The Beagle library was also a rich visual gallery of illustrations and maps. Many of the works were beautifully illustrated with woodcuts or engravings of animals or scenes of exotic lands. The online Beagle library now allows anyone to see the amazing range of images that Darwin poured over during the voyage of the Beagle.
