Meticulously detailed ship's plans of HMS Beagle, for anyone thinking of making a model or replica.
OK, this one is really only essential reading for Darwin completists, model-making nerds, and anyone hoping to make a working replica of HMS Beagle. But it's a fantastic book!
Marquardt's research is meticulous and his detailed ship's plans are phenomenal. It's a real labour of love.
But, like I said, you need to be a real Darwin completist to buy it.
Which is why I did!
