Now available in a new edition, this gorgeously illustrated book showcases botanical masterpieces by Alexander van Humboldt, 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 traveled 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. Internationally renowned botanist H. Walter Lack lends his expertise to a fascinating essay that discusses Humboldt's significant contributions to the world of botany and scientific research. Technically precise, the prints are equally appealing to anyone who appreciates fine art and botanical illustration.
