A fascinating look at the sketchbooks of Conrad Martens, who travelled on The Beagle. With Darwin. Hoping the link works. If not it is worth searching on YouTube

Purr! Thanks for posting the link to that video! I love that kind of sketching. Back in those days it was an essential subject in school, everyone had to learn to draw reasonably accurately. These are wonderful!

Thanks for sharing the link, it's an interesting video (though I wish they had chosen music slightly less like the soundtrack to The Exorcist :rolleyes:).
