Johann Gottlieb Georgi (1729-1803) was a German geographer and chemist. In 1770 he studied at the Russian Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. Two years later Georgi went to accompany Peter Simon Pallas, a German zoologist and biologist, on his expedition through Siberia. "He was particularly interested in the region of the Lake Baikal. His description and mapping of this region remained one of the most accurate and significant for several decades. After his return to St. Petersburg Georgi published the observations he made during his trip. It is hard to overestimate Georgi's work. His records provided extensive and accurate ethnographical, economical, botanical and geographical descriptions of the large part of the Russian Empire." (NDB, Neue Deutsche Biographie VI, 242). Cf. SK 1374; Lipperheide 133; Colas 1224; Brunet II, 618. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
