On 27th December, 1831, after much delay, a ship lifted anchor from Barn Pool, near Davenport, England. Soon to become one of the most famous ships in history, it was headed on a two year expedition to conduct a hydrographic survey of the southern coasts of South America. Just before it set out, the captain of the ship, a 24-year old aristocrat, gave his companion, a 22-year old naturalist, a copy of a recently published book. Little could he have imagined the profound impact that this simple action would have on his companion’s life or on our understanding of the natural world.
