Darwin - Zoology of the Voyage of the Beagle-Birds
We have chosen the Bird
volume for our first Digital Sketch
in Natural History. The illustrations are wonderful and
colorful and the birds proved to be very important in helping
Darwin form his ideas on evolution and speciation. This first
phase of the project covers the family Muscicapidae,
consisting of six pages of text (presented as image files to
preserve the original "feel" of the work) and three
hand-colored lithographs by John and Elizabeth Gould.
