A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Wallace's The Malay Archipelago is undoubtedly the classic work on the flora, fauna, and peoples of the area which is now called Indonesia. Based largely on field journals Wallace kept during the eight years he spent in Malaysia and Indonesia between 1854 and 1862, this work ranks as the greatest travel book on the region and, in its analysis of the geographical distribution of animals, as one of the most important natural history books of the 19th century.

From the Back Cover:

Much as Charles Darwin's name is inextricably associated with the Galapagos, Alfred Russel Wallace's is deeply associated with Indonesia. A British biologist and explorer--and a contemporary of Darwin who developed his own theory of evolution in parallel--Wallace spent eight years in the region, covering 14,000 square miles in his expeditions, amassing an unparalleled collection of 125,000 specimens of local insects and animals, and becoming the first European to set foot in many of the exotic places in which he tarried to study.

Considered one of the 19th century's greatest scientific and travel books, this classic volume details his journeys and intellectual endeavors, from his friendships with the natives to his startlement at the strange creatures who lived there.

This replica of the 1890 tenth edition, complete with all the beautiful original line drawings and maps, will thrill students of natural history, armchair travelers, and anyone fascinated by the human urge to explore.
