Life of Alexander Von Humboldt, Volume 1

Volume:  1
By:  J Löwenberg, R Avé-Lallemant

A reprint of a classical work in the Cambridge Library Collection.

Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was a naturalist, explorer and philanthropist now well known for his multidisciplinary approach to science. First published in English in 1873, this two-volume biography was translated from the German edition of 1872, edited by Karl Bruhns, which had been compiled in commemoration of the centenary of Humboldt's birth. Incorporating numerous extracts of Humboldt's own warmly written letters and anecdotes from his many acquaintances, it charts his travels in South America, Asia and Europe.
