5500 pages, 18th century plates, fold out maps, plus 2 tapa samples
The publication of a major international series of eight volumes – in all 11 books and approximately 5,000 pages – has been in preparation since the beginning of this century under the overall title of The Linnaeus Apostles – Global Science & Adventure. All the accounts of the apostles' journeys to every continent will be published here for the first time in English; those of the apostles who left no travel journals are described through their correspondence or other sources. In the introductory and concluding volumes world experts in various subject fields will provide accounts of the 18th century, of Linnaeus, of travelling and the hardships of field work, together with biographies and a comprehensive new bibliography of the publications of the apostles.
