“Go it Charlie”

Happy (slightly belated) Darwin Day! To celebrate, here is a cartoon of Darwin I first saw when visiting Down House last summer.

It was drawn by Darwin’s friend and classmate at Cambridge, Albert Way, in 1832. I think the drawing quite nicely speaks to Darwin’s enthusiasm for natural history, and especially beetle collecting, well before his historic voyage and academic achievements later in life.
