Caption

Geologie - the joys of the new public science of geology. Copperplate engraving with original hand colouring from Guerin's French "Picturesque Dictionary of Natural History" circa 1834. Geology was at the forefront of the sciences in the early 19th century, a fact that encouraged many Europeans to take it up as a scientific pastime. At the time there were very few jobs available in any of the sciences and real contributions in geology and palaeontology were made by amateurs. While on the Beagle voyage, Darwin, (inspired by Lyell's Principles of Geology), considered himself to be more a geologist than a biologist.
