THE LAVISH SCIENTIFIC RECORD OF DARWIN'S COLLECTING ENDEAVOURS during the five-year voyage of the Beagle. Originally issued in 19 numbers, subsequently in five volumes, and then in this three volume issue, apparently published without volume titles. Darwin "superintended the Zoology's text, wrote introductions for the different parts, and added notes from his various Beagle records about animal behavior and habitats wherever appropriate, while also supervising the printers, proofreading the sheets, arranging artists for the plates, chivying the experts, and keeping them all moving forward within a tight self-imposed budget" (Browne).
