Charles Darwin (1809-1882), British naturalist, examining a beetle on his hand, anthropological model. Darwin had briefly studied medicine and then trained in the clergy, but his interest was in natural history. In 1831 he set sail as naturalist on HMS Beagle, which was to provide the fieldwork for his famous book. His theory of evolution was published as 'On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection' (1859). It caused a storm of controversy with Christian orthodoxy, as it contradicted the belief that species were created by God. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
