NEW EDITION

This book showcases botanical masterpieces by Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), one of history's great scientists and explorers.
Recording Alexander von Humboldt's historic expedition to the Americas and Cuba-hailed by many as the "scientific discovery of America"-these intricate and delicately tinted prints reveal his revolutionary findings as he travelled through jungles, across rivers, and over mountainous terrain.
The illustrations in the book give the English and Latin botanical names of the plants and are followed by an exhaustive index. Botanist H. Walter Lack lends his expertise to an essay that discusses Humboldt's significant contributions to the world of botany and scientific research.
