- This view appeared in the atlas that was issued as part of Humboldt and Bonpland’s Voyage aux régions équinoxiales du Nouveau Continent fait en 1799, 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804 (Paris, 1808-1834), which was published in over thirty volumes over several decades. The atlas of maps and views shows new scientific information in novel ways that had not been used before. Using a combination three dimensional view and flat diagram, Humboldt shows the names of plants and trees and the elevations they grow at on Mount Chimborazo, thought at the time to be the tallest mountain in the world.
