Travels in the island of Iceland : during the summer of the year MDCCCX by George Steuart Mackenzie( Book )

1 edition published in 1811 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir George Steuart Mackenzie (1780-1848) was a Scottish baronet whose interests included chemistry and geology. This work, first published in 1811, is his account of his voyage to Iceland in 1810 for the purposes of mineralogical research. Accompanied by physicians Henry Holland and Richard Bright, Mackenzie surveyed volcanoes, geysers and the other geological features of the island. In addition to reporting the results of the expedition's scientific exploration, this charming and evocative journal describes the history, culture, attire and cuisine of the islanders. Also included are Richard Bright's observations on the zoology and botany of Iceland and a survey of the health of the population by Henry Holland, who introduced smallpox inoculation during his visit. Written in an easy, accessible style, this account brings to life the sights, smells and tastes of the tour and the often rudimentary accommodation and travel conditions

1 edition published in 1805 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ayant accepté en 1792 d'accompagner le duc Macartney lors de son ambassade en Chine, Alexander crée de nombreux croquis lors du voyage de retour de Pékin à Canton par voie fluviale. Aucun artiste britannique n'avait encore ramené des images de cette voie de communication à l'intérieur de l'empire chinois. Ces croquis ont ensuite servi pour des aquarelles peintes par Alexander et pour de nombreuses planches gravées par Alexander lui-même ou par d'autres artistes. Pendant plus d'un demi-siècle, ces planches ont exercé une grande influence sur des artistes à la recherche de sujets chinois (d'après Grove dictionary of art)
