About this book

Originally published in 1999 and now published in a new paperback edition with a refreshed format, this is a mesmerising visual record of ten of the world's most significant natural history expeditions.

Superb artworks and photographs spanning three centuries document advances and watersheds in the field of natural science. The stories behind these images – of explorers, naturalists, artists and photographers – entwine into a fascinating study of human achievement and natural wonder.

Among the many stories of adventure and great scientific endeavour are Sir Hans Sloane's journey to Jamaica in 1687, James Cook's perilous Pacific crossings, and Darwin's historic voyage aboard HMS Beagle.

Media reviews

"It's difficult to resist attacking this book with a pair of scissors. Not because it's bad – far from it – but because so many of the illustrations whisper "Cut me out and stick me on the wall over the mantelpiece"."
Geographical: Magazine of the Royal Geographical Society

"A mesmerising visual and textual record of ten of the most significant natural history expeditions in history."
Good Book Guide

"Nature lovers should enjoy Voyages of Discovery with hundreds of naturalist drawings from the Natural History Museum."
