A solid, lovely copy. About FRANZ WILHELM JUNGHUHN (from Wikipedia): ******Friedrich Franz Wilhelm Junghuhn (1809-1864), was a German-Dutch Botanist and Geologist. Junghuhn settled on Java, where he made an extensive study of the land and its people. He discovered the Kawah Putih crater lake south of Bandung in 1837. He published extensively on his many adventurous expeditions and his scientific analyses. Among his works is an important description and natural history in many volumes of the volcanoes of Java, BIJDRAGEN TOT DE GESCHIEDENIS DER VULKANEN IN DEN INDISCHEN ARCHIPEL (1843). He completed DIE TOPOGRAPHISCHEN UND NATURWISSENSCHAFTLICHEN REISEN DURCH JAVA (TOPOGRAPHIC AND SCIENTIFIC JOURNEYS IN JAVA) in 1845 and a first anthropological and topographical study of Sumatra, DIE BÄTTALANDER AUF SUMATRA (BATAK LANDS OF SUMATRA). in 1847. In 1849, ill health forced his return to the Netherlands, where he married Johanna Louisa Frederika Koch on January 23, 1850, and had a son. While in the Netherlands, Junghuhn began work on a four volume treatise published in Dutch and translated into German between 1850 and 1854: JAVA, DESZELFS GEDAANTE, BEKLEEDING EN INWENDIGE STRUKTUUR (in German: JAVA, SEINE GESTALT, PFLANZENDECKE, UND SEIN INNERER BAU). Junghuhn was an avid humanist and socialist. In the Netherlands he published anonymously his free thinking manifesto LICHT EN SCHADUWBEELDEN UIT DE BINNENLANDEN VAN JAVA (IMAGES OF LIGHT AND SHADOW FROM JAVA'S INTERIOR) between 1853 and 1855. The work was controversial, advocating socialism in the colonies and fiercely criticizing Christian and Islamic proselytization of the Javanese people. Junghuhn instead wrote of his preference for a form of Pandeism (pantheistic deism), contending that God was in everything, but could only be determined through reason. The work was banned in Austria and parts of Germany for its denigrations and vilifications of Christianity, but was a strong seller in the Netherlands where it was first published pseudonymously. Junghuhn returned to Java in 1855 and remained there until his death from liver disease in 1864.******
