About this book

Language: German

Alexander von Humboldt published two dozen books and over 700 papers, articles, and essays. Less well known is that the naturalist and travel writer was also a draftsman and graphic artist. Around 1500 illustrations accompanied his writings. Humboldt's images are as diverse as his interests: As ethnologist and cultural scientist, he sketched people, buildings and everyday objects. As a botanist, zoologist and anatomist, he drew plants, animals and body details. As a geologist, geographer and cartographer he drew mountains, waters and continents. Alexander von Humboldt: Das Graphische Gesamtwerk makes his graphic oeuvre available in the public domain for the first time. All pictures from Humboldt's American travelogues, as well as those scattered in other publications are reproduced here in excellent quality. An introduction by Humboldt specialist Oliver Lubrich, and an appendix with an overview of Humboldt's work, figure captions and a chronology complement this edition.

Summary in German:
Alexander von Humboldt veröffentlichte zwei Dutzend Bücher und mehr als 700 Aufsätze, Artikel und Essays. Weniger bekannt ist, dass der Naturforscher und Reiseschriftsteller auch Zeichner und Graphiker war. Rund 1500 Abbildungen begleiten seine Schriften. Humboldts Bilder sind ebenso vielfältig wie seine Interessen: Als Ethnologe und Kulturwissenschaftler skizzierte er Menschen, Gebäude und Alltagsgegenstände. Als Botaniker, Zoologe und Anatom zeichnete er Pflanzen, Tiere und Körperdetails. Als Geologe, Geograph und Kartograph erfasste er Gebirge, Gewässer und Kontinente. Dieser großartige Band macht das graphische Gesamtwerk erstmals allgemein zugänglich. Sämtliche Abbildungen aus Humboldts amerikanischem Reisewerk wie auch die im übrigen Werk verstreuten Motive finden sich in exzellenter Qualität reproduziert. Eine Einleitung des Humboldt-Spezialisten Oliver Lubrich und ein Anhang mit Werkübersicht, Bildbeschreibung und Zeittafel ergänzen die Edition.
