    Cross-section of HMS Beagle, 1832

    From Bernard Lightman's article in the Notes and Records of the Royal Society in June 2010: "One author who adopted the strategy of emphasizing Darwin's powers of observation wrote a book for young readers just before Darwin's death. Published anonymously in 1879, What Mr. Darwin Saw in His Voyages Round the World in the Ship ‘Beagle’ made evolutionary theory safe for children by focusing on the Darwin of the Beagle voyage (figure 1). Published in New York by Harper, it reached a third edition by 1904. The author was Wendell Phillips Garrison (1840–1907), literary editor of the Nation from 1865 to 1906 and son of William Lloyd Garrison, the famous abolitionist."
