Library l'Institut de France

In 2019, during the 250th anniversary of Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), Claudia Isabel Navas, was invited by the Library l’Institut de France to curate an exhibition and a publication on Humboldt’s manuscripts and printed books conserved at the Institut de France. The exhibition « Le voyage américain d’Alexandre de Humboldt (1799-1804) » was presented on September 14th through December 10th. The publication « Les Impressions de Plantes de Humboldt et Bonpland » was published with inedited prints of plants made by Humboldt and Bonpland during their expedition in the Americas. The manuscript, Ms980, which is conserved at the Bibliothèque de l’Institut de France is one of it’s kind in the world.
