Pictures of the Young Darwin

Nunatak of The Beagle Project said, “So, I urge you, my fellow science bloggers, Darwin’s bulldogs/flying lemurs, Wallace’s rottweilers and other champions of science and reason to please use this Darwin Day as an opportunity to pour on more images of Darwin the young man.” Well, then, here you go. These illustrations, although not exact representations of the young Darwin (he wasn’t that masculine, was he?), are from a 1960 children’s book (of this series), We Were There with Charles Darwin on H.M.S. Beagle, by Philip Eisenberg and illustrated by H.B. Vestal.
