For the first time, Darwin's fascinating "Journal of the Voyage of the Beagle" round the world, nearly sixty years ago, has been issued as a fine paper illustrated edition, by Mr. John Murray, of London. This handsome new edition is profusely illustrated in a very superior manner by R. T. Pritchett, from sketches made by him on the spot with Mr. Darwin's book by his side. Others of the drawings are after engravings selected by Mr. Darwin himself as illustrating, his voyage, and these have been lent by his son Mr, Pritchett's name is well known in connection with the illustrations of the "Sunbeam" and the "wanderer." His more recent painstaking work adds greater value and interest to the "Voyage of a Naturalist."
