"Accounts of famous voyages make most attractive books, and Darwin's is no exception, especially if it combines the interest of natural history with that of travel. Naturalists have taken part in voyages to different regions of the world ever since interest in exploration was thoroughly awakened by the discovery of new lands with their strange plants and animals."
