HARRASSOWITZ Offers Three New Publications to Commemorate Alexander von Humboldt’s 250th Birthday
To commemorate Alexander von Humboldt’s 250th birthday on September 14, 2019, the German dtv Verlag is preparing the following three works that will significantly alter future research on this celebrated geographer, explorer, and naturalist. Alexander von Humboldt was the most internationally oriented publicist of his time and his hundreds of articles, essays, and letters were published in 15 languages. 97 percent of these texts have not been edited since his death. The Berner Ausgabe “Sämtlicher Schriften” is unearthing this treasure.

The publication “Der Andere Kosmos” contains a selection of 70 texts that illustrate Humboldt’s life and works in an exemplary manner.
