Charles Darwin considered it to be one of the most formative journeys of his life. His diary and scientific journal of his time aboard the HMS Beagle, now best known as The Voyage of the Beagle, was a bestseller. It was also on this voyage that the first seeds of his masterwork, Origin of Species, were planted. Now thanks to Cambridge University the entire sketchbooks of Conrad Martens, a shipmate of Darwin’s on the HMS Beagle, are available online. View the Book Patrol article video of sketches: What Darwin Saw: Sketchbooks from the voyage of the HMS Beagle added to Cambridge Digital Library.
