D. D. Mather on inside of front board. Mather was the author of the 1865 work "True Greatness. A Discourse delivered at Zanesville, Ohio, April 19th, 1865, on occasion of the Death of Abraham Lincoln." Frontispiece engraving of author, protected by tissue guard. Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt (1769-1859) was a German naturalist and explorer. Kosmos (Cosmos) was first published in 1845. Humboldt attempts to unify the various branches of scientific knowledge. For decades he intended to write a comprehensive work about different facets of geography and the natural sciences. The writing first took shape in a set of lectures he delivered before the University of Berlin in 1827-28. Humboldt's work was by and large a synthesis of Kantian views of unity of natural phenomena. Drawing together the methods and instrumentation of the discrete sciences and with inspiration from German Romanticism, he sought to create a compendium of the world's environment. The book was written for an educated audience and contains much contemporaneous scientific data. Humboldt also explored much of Central and South America around the turn of the 19th century. Foxing on frontis, tissue and title-page. Some age wear, scuffing and staining on binding. Head and tail of spines chipped. Rippling to cloth on front board of Vol. I. Staining on front and rear endpapers. Very minor foxing on some pages. Waterstaining on top right corner starting on page 139 through rear endpaper, not affecting text. Translated from the German by E. C. Ottè. Binding in good-, interior in overall very good condition. Scarce, complete 1855 edition. Bookseller Inventory #
