Excerpt

s _Observations géologiques sur les îles volcaniques, et les notes sur la géologie de l'Australie et du Cap de Bonne-Espérance_, il parut en 1844. Les matériaux de ce volume ont été réunis en partie au commencement du voyage, lorsque le Beagle fit escale à San Thiago dans l'archipel du Cap-Vert, aux Rochers de Saint-Paul et à Fernando Noronha; mais surtout durant la croisière de retour; c'est alors que Darwin étudia les îles Galapagos, qu'il traversa l'archipel des îles Pomotou et visita Tahiti. Après avoir touché à la Baie des Iles dans la Nouvelle-Zélande, ainsi qu'à Sydney, à Hobart-Town et à King George's Sound en Australie, le Beagle, traversant l'Océan Indien, fit voile vers le petit groupe des îles Keeling ou Cocos, célèbre par les observations qu'y a faites Darwin, et se dirigea ensuite vers l'île Maurice. Après une escale au Cap de Bonne-Espérance, le navire arriva successivement à Sainte-Hélène et à l'Ascension, et visita une seconde fois les îles du Cap-Vert avant de rentrer en Angleterre.
