Description:

KALM, Peter. Travels into North America; Containing Its Natural History, and a Circumstantial Account of Its Plantations and Agriculture in General, with the Civil, Ecclesiastical and Commercial State of the Country, the Manners of the Inhabitants, and Several Curious and Important Remarks on Various Subjects. London: Printed for T. Lowndes, 1772. 2nd ed. in English. 2 Vols. xii,414; iv,423,[8]pp. Six engraved plates, folding map. Early 19th-century full polished calf, gilt-ruled, elaborately gilt-decorated spine with raised spine bands and red morocco spine labels. Occasional very faint scattered foxing, else near fine. HOWES K-5, "aa." Taxonomic Literature 3493. Reese, The Struggle for North America 80. Coates, The Plant Hunters, pp. 277-279. Sabin 36989. Translated by George Reinhold Forster, after the Swedish first edition of 1753-1761 and the rare first English edition published in Warrington in 1770-1771. "One of the most important and reliable eighteenth-century accounts of American natural history, social organization, and political situation. Kalm gives especially important accounts of the American Swedish settlements"--Streeter Sale, 823. Kalm was in America in 1748-1749 and made a notable trip into the back country of New York with the naturalist, John Bartram, as well as traveling in more settled regions. He was one of the most notable of early American naturalists, and made important contributions to the study of American botany. In his dedication, Forster writes the text will "display to the British nation, the circumstances of a country which is so happy as to be under its protection." While this statement might have expressed colonial sentiment during the years of the book's first production, by the time the Warrington edition was produced such affection for Great Britain had clearly subsided. A fundamental work of early American natural history. Bookseller Inventory # 61959

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English. Brand new Book. Peter Kalm (1716-79) was a Finnish-Swedish botanist who travelled extensively to observe the natural world in Sweden, Finland, Russia and Ukraine and became a professor of 'oeconomie', - the economic application of subjects such as mineralogy, botany, zoology and chemistry - at the university of Turku. Between 1747 and 1751 he set out on a journey through eastern North America to gather specimens, especially from regions with a similar climate to Sweden. Because Kalm travelled though the area when much of it was still unknown to Europeans, this work has some of the first recorded accounts of places such as Niagara Falls. Kalm played an important part in forging scientific links between Sweden, England and North America. This three-volume work details his travels, and was first published in English in 1770-1. Volume 3 focuses on Kalm's observations of plants and animals in Canada, especially around the French-speaking settlements. Seller Inventory # AAV9781108031516
