Mr Darwin's Specimen Journal follows Charles Darwin's journey of observational recording to the edges of new lands and ideas. Darwin's journal entries, together with detailed specimen recording of plants, animals and geology, all provide clues to a giant worldwide puzzle that Darwin pieced together for his revolutionary theories.
