"A Naturalist's Voyage Around the World" is the title of a new edition of a work by Darwin, the celebrated teacher of evolution. The voyage was made many years ago on the British Naval ship Beagle. It was one of the most fruitful expeditions, from the stand-point of science, upon which a man ever embarked: and the store of facts that Darwin took back to England after this long cruise was a noteworthy addition to those two departments of science. Sailing from England, the ship stopped first at Brazil, and then skirted slowly down the coast of South America through the Straits of Magellan and up the Pacific coast as far north as Peru; from that point it started upon a cruise through the islands of the Pacific, remaining among them as long as there were promises of new discoveries and fresh fields of operation. Finally rounding the Cape of Good Hope, the voyagers again crossed the Atlantic to South America and thence returned home. The present edition is enriched by illustrations made on the spot by Mr. R. T. Pritchett.
