Travel With One of the Greatest 19th Century Explorers

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

There were few human beings in the 19th century more interesting and transformative than the German naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt. And yet his name and his story, at least in the U.S., is far from common knowledge. His adventures in Latin America and Siberia not only opened Europe’s eyes to the richness and wonder of those regions, but he also changed the future of science. His meticulous documentation of plants, geology, and climate still has effects in the worlds of ecology and science today.

That’s why this week’s selection for Just Booked, our twice-a-month series highlighting gorgeous new coffee table books related to travel, is H. Walter Lack’s Alexander von Humboldt and the Botanical Exploration of the Americas. Lack, a renowned German botanist, fills the pages with a serious (and not always flattering) look at Humboldt’s legacy in science. The book has beautiful illustrations of his journeys, including when he climbed what was then believed to be the world’s tallest peak, Chimborazo in Ecuador. The real gems in the book, however, are the richly colored prints of artistic renderings of the plants he documented along the way, as well as photographs of the specimens he retained for study in Europe.

Humboldt was incredibly courageous; he was challenged by a hostile power (Spain), the extremes going from some of the most deadly jungles in the world to its highest peaks, and the general perils of living in an era without modern medicine or communication. He remains, quite simply, an inspiration, and this book hopefully will continue the recent trend of a return to his notoriety.

Jon Stewart Turns the Tables on Stephen Colbert: ‘Donald Trump, Great President or Greatest President?’

Scott Kowalchyk/CBS

Three years into his stint hosting The Late Show, Stephen Colbert is finally starting to feel “a little bit like Jon Stewart.”

For a change of pace Tuesday night, CBS aired a pre-taped episode of the late-night show in which the tables were turned as Colbert sat in the guest chair and took questions from friends like Jake Tapper, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Kerry Washington, Charlamagne tha God and most significantly, his former boss at The Daily Show.

Stewart began his interview by asking Colbert, “Who the hell do you think you are?” That prompted the host’s admission that he is beginning to feel like he is able to pick up Stewart’s mantle as the most trusted man in political comedy.

Baseball’s Greatest Poem Is About a Loser

Credit: Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

For all of the carping these days about the slow pace of baseball, there was a time when our grand, clockless sport fired millions of imaginations.

Said firing was helped along by a 24-year-old Easterner named Ernest Thayer, who had gone west to San Francisco to make his journalistic name. If you knew a Thayer who was a writer, you were probably a classical music aficionado, and had tracked down a copy of Alexander Thayer’s first-ever biography of Beethoven. But our Mr. Thayer was interested in another mighty B, you might say, that being baseball in all of its attendant, grand-sweeping powers, as borne out in poesy.

It was 130 years ago that Thayer published “Casey at the Bat,” a 13-verse poem that he regarded as doggerel. But this was high-level doggerel, if the term ever fit. You may have never sat down to read those 13 verses, you may have nary a clue who Ernest Thayer is, you may not like baseball, you may detest all things “sports ball,” but there is no way you have not come in contact with some aspect of the finest poem about athletics ever penned in this country.
