Synopsis From one of Australia’s most acclaimed authors, a dazzling and deeply imagined exploration of ambition, natural marvels, and scientific discovery, and one of history’s most significant crises of faith. As a boy of thirteen, Syms Covington leaves his home in Bedford and goes to sea, passing into manhood as he sails the world, surveying Patagonia, and losing his virginity in the Pampas. Aboard the HMS Beagle, he enters the service of Charles Darwin as an energetic and precocious fifteen-year-old, and in the course of their voyages together he shoots and collects hundreds of specimens for his gent, specimens that become fundamental to the formulation of Darwin’s theory of evolution. Now a crusty, eccentric, near-deaf old man, Covington has settled in Australia and is awaiting the arrival of the first copy of On the Origin of Species. Beset by guilt over participating in a work that will shake the human worldview to its foundations, he nonetheless wonders what part of himself might be reflected in Darwin’s oeuvre. Mr. Darwin’s Shooter captures its time with rare and dazzling skill, evoking an unforgettable but forgotten man at a watershed moment in history. Gabriella Stern Mr. McDonald has given this marginal historical figure a life, and what a life it is. -- The Wall Street Journal. Trade Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Penguin USA, 2000

MR. DARWIN'S SHOOTER : A Novel - First edition

2000, ISBN: 9780140288599

Paperback, ID: 28712386

New York, NY: Penguin, 2000. BRAND NEW & Collectible softcover. 1st Edition, 1st Printing. During the historic Beagle Expedition (1831 - 1836) Charles Darwin (1809 - 1882) writes his sister, "My servant is an odd sort of person. I do not very much like him; but he is ... very well adapted to my purposes." This novel is an imaginative, fictional reconstruction of Covington Syms' (1813 -1861) personal growth beginning from his becoming Darwin's shipboard assistant while still in his teens, to promotion to house-servant, and later, installed as the scientist's clerk in London. He will be acutely disappointed to find no reference his existence and his services when the Origen of Species was published some twenty years later. A human drama leaving open whether it might not have been Covington who first grasped the full import of the scientific exploration made all the more real by its subversion of fundamental principles of Victorian world order by catapulting the conflict between science and religion to the fore, and the unequivocal repudiation of one'slife's work through non-mention. Fine copy of an extraordinary excursion.. First Edition, First Pinting. Soft Cover. Collectible New/None As Issued., Penguin, 2000
