Two volumes bound in deep brown cloth over boards with titles in gilt on red panel on spine. Edge corner and surface wear with boards showing at corners and spine ends. Both volumes have a very slight roll to spine. Ansichten der Natur or Views of Natur is a collection of essays on various aspects of nature. It was Humboldt's favorite work and, in many ways, his most influential. Written in German and published in Germany, this is, I think, the first edition. Until recently, Humboldt has not been widely known in America, but a newbiography and new translations have brought wider recognition. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote of Humboldt, “He is one of those wonders of the world who appear from time to time, as if to show us the possibilities of the human mind.” Ansichten der Natur is an important work by a true Renaissance Man. ; 2 Volumes; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 362, 407 pages
