Journal of a Tour in Iceland in the Summer of 1809

Front Cover
J. Keymer, 1811 - Botany - 496 pages
Includes colour images of traditional Icelandic dress and natural landmarks, Journal of a Tour in Iceland was written after author William Jackson Hooker set out on a long expedition across Iceland. Paying particular attention to the political structures and religious institutions in the nation, the author includes intricate tables of how tax dollars were spent, how hospitals and schools were run and more in his lengthy introduction. As an academic botanist by trade, Hooker's journal entries of the text are largely spent on describing the beautiful and exotic flora of the country.
