This excerpt includes the title page, pages , an image of an iceberg, and the image caption from Aus den Tiefen des Weltmeeres. This beautiful book chronicles the story of the German Valdivia expedition to the South Atlantic, Indian, and Great Southern oceans from This was the last of the great 19th century oceanographic cruises. The German government funded the expedition, after Carl Chun, a professor at the University of Leipzig, applied to the German Association of Natural Scientists for sponsorship.

The Valdivia was a steamship chartered from the Hamburg-American Company and was fitted with biological and chemical laboratories, large and handsome cabins, a first-class scientific library, and storage space for marine specimens collected during the cruise. Mangrove and raffia palms in the Congo.

Nineteenth century explorers, in addition to cataloging and describing the flora and fauna of the ocean realms, also visited and chronicled the scenery, inhabitants, and culture of inland areas. The crew saw about icebergs and sketched and photographed many of them. Some icebergs were craggy and weather-beaten, possibly old icebergs that had been exposed to wind and sea. Some were of regular, tabular appearance, suggesting they had recently broken off. Most towered to feet above the water and plunged 1, to 1, feet below the surface.

The longest iceberg observed was between three and four miles long. Wonderful graphics adorn the beginning of each chapter, with caricatures and cartoons of crew and officer alike throughout the volume. Author: Carl Chun
