Adventure and Beagle in four volumes including Darwin's Journal and Remarks, 1832—1836 as the third volume.

However, the office of "prime minister" has been explicitly referred to a number of times in emergency wartime legislation; and in 1905, the title was in a sense officially recognized, when the "prime minister" was given a position within the "order of precedence" (behind the Archbishop of York).
Until Robert Peel's unsuccessful attempt to govern without a majority in Parliament, the monarch still retained a great deal of discretion over the naming of the Prime Minister.
The title was not formally adopted (though it had long been used) until the premiership of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman (1905–08) when a "prime minister" was given a status just behind that of the Archbishop of York.
