Despite today’s controversy regarding several aspects of his legacy, Swiss-born Harvard Professor Louis Agassiz 1807–1873 was one of the most eminent scientists of his time. After his death, Washington-based photographer and amateur naturalist, Henry Ulke 1821–1910, honored his ‘esteemed friend’ which is clear from his personal letter of condolence addressed to Agassiz’s eldest. Description: In 1837, Agassiz was the first to scientifically propose that the Earth had been subject to a past ice age. This book lays out his theories in print. It represents his theories that vast areas of northern Europe had in the past been covered in ice, extending down to the Caspian and Mediterranean seas.
