Dealer Notes
Forchhammer (1794-1865) became a lecturer in geology at the University of Copenhagen in 1821. He corresponded with the notable scientists of his day, and these three pamphlets reproduce some of his correspondence with the chemist Jacob Berzelius, the zoologist Sven Nilsson, and Charles Darwin. The Darwin booklet reproduces letters concerning Darwin’s request to receive some examples of Cirripedes from Forchhammer; it transcribes four of Darwin’s letters, and reproduces the final one as a frontispiece. This series of Forchhammer’s letters was completed by a fourth pamphlet, in 1927, relating details of his visit to the Faroe Islands in 1821.
