Early Writings of Carl von Linné


Significant works of young scholars at times can have great impact on the scholarly community, but remain relatively unknown for a broader public. The early works of Carl Linné (1707-78), annotated journals of his travels in Sweden and abroad, in which he laid the foundation for his efforts to devise a nomenclature for natural genera and species, were never published during his lifetime. The account of his travels in Lapland was published in English in 1811. The notes of his early travels in Bergslagen, Dalarna, and abroad were edited and published by Ewald Ährling to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Linné’s death. Linné is also known by his Latinized name, Carolus Linnaeus.
