Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.1in.Lives of the Brothers Humboldt - Alexander amp William Translated from the original German at the turn of the century, this is an exhaustive biography of both brothers Humboldt, with a section of the book devoted to each. Friedrich Heinrich Alexander, Baron von Humboldt, (September 14, 1769, Berlin-May 6, 1859, Berlin), was a German naturalist and explorer, and the younger brother of the Prussian minister, philosopher, and linguist Wilhelm von Humboldt. Humboldts quantitative work on botanical geography was foundational to the field of biogeography. Friedrich Wilhelm Christian Karl Ferdinand Freiherr von Humboldt (June 22, 1767 - April 8, 1835), government functionary, foreign diplomat, philosopher, founder of Humboldt Universitt in Berlin, friend of Goethe and especially of Schiller, is especially remembered as a German linguist who introduced a knowledge of the Basque language to European intellectuals. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
