This is an auction for DARWIN AND THE BEAGLE by Alan Moorehead.

Amazon.com reviews:

"When the Beagle sailed in 1831, she carried a young naturalist, Charles Darwin, at age 22 still unknown. Destined for the church, Darwin was cozily at ease with creation as explained in Genesis. But everything he encountered on the voyage - from the primitive people of Tierra del Fuego to the finches of the Galapagos Islands, from earthquakes and eruptions to fossil seashells gathered at 12,000 feet in the Andes - challenged biblical assumptions and led finally to ORIGIN OF SPECIES."

"FIVE STARS!!! This is a wonderful account of how the mind of a gifted man developed the view of a basic truth which we now recognize as fact. How he saw and questioned, over and over, the hypothesis that all things grew from prior beings and not as the faith-based tale of Creation proposed. Unlike many of the men of his time, he could not avoid the obvious when all observations were put to the test of dissent and discussion. Heavy reading, at times, it should be required reading for all thinking people."
