The research Alexander von Humboldt amassed during his five-year trek through the Americas at the turn of the eighteenth to the nineteenth century proved foundational to the fields of botany, geography, and geology. But his visit to Cuba during this time yielded observations that extended far beyond the natural world. Political Essay on the Island of Cuba is a physical and cultural study of the island nation. In it, Humboldt denounces colonial slavery on both moral and economic grounds and stresses the vital importance of improving intercultural relations throughout the Americas

The legacy of Alexander von Humboldt (1769 & ndash;1859) looms large over the natural sciences. His 1799 & ndash;1804 research expedition to Central and South America with botanist Aimé Bonpland set the course for the great scientific surveys of the nineteenth century, especially Darwin's travels to South America, and inspired such essayists and artists as Emerson, Goethe, Thoreau, Poe, and Church. The chronicles of the expedition were published in Paris after Humboldt's return, and first among them was the 1807 "Essay on the Geography of Plants." Among the most cited writings in natural history

Ansichten der Kordilleren und Monumente der eingeborenen Völker Amerikas by Alexander von Humboldt( Book )

76 editions published between 1810 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El objetivo de Humboldt (1769-1859) en estas Vistas de las Cordilleras y monumentos de los pueblos indígenas de América era reunir todo lo que estuviera relacionado con el origen y el progreso temprano del arte entre los pueblos indígenas de América, siempre vinculándolo con la naturaleza y el paisaje, lo que convierte esta obra en una presentación estética y visual de su viaje americano. En 1878 vio la luz una versión española de Bernardo Giner, reducida y basada en una edición francesa, con la idea de presentar un libro más sencillo y popular que la edición monumental, algo que también pretende la presente reedición. Una de las características de la obra humboldtiana, que aquí aparece de manera más expresiva, es la combinación de lo subjetivo, la sensación, con lo objetivo, la medición científica, el arte, representado por la literatura y la pintura, así como la ciencia."--Casadellibro
