JOHAN PETER FALCK'S ILLUSTRATION

Does anybody know more?


iPROJECT Written by Lars Hansen

Does anybody know more? The actual picture in The Linnaeus Apostle Johan Peter Falck's Journal lacks details - what is it? Geographical location in Russia or Kazakhstan? If any of our readers know more about it, please feel free to contact IK.

Falck’s journal was published posthumously by J.G. Georgi in German 1785-86; Herr Joh. Pet. Falck: Beyträge zur Topographischen Kenntniss des Russischen Reichs… in three volumes. His comprehensive journal was first published in English 2007 – The Linnaeus Apostles Global Science & Adventure (Volume Two) – by The IK Foundation & Company. The complete journal is also freely accessible as an iBOOK on this site. Falck’s way of amassing facts and with meticulous precision giving account for the most varied disciplines bore great similarities with Linnaeus’ methods of working. Life in the countryside and villages was reported from a number of perspectives; botany, zoology and mineralogy being central to his investigations. His journal gives important keys to the understanding of the vast Russian area in the 1760s and 1770s.

This request is part of the ongoing ”BRIDGE BUILDER EXPEDITIONS – RUSSIA & KAZAKHSTAN”.
