Straddling comparative literary and cultural studies and the history of science, this chapter insists on the importance of translation to the scientific culture of early- to mid-nineteenth-century Britain. It emphasises the centrality of women to the translation of Humboldt’s work for a British readership and explores more generally the reception of his work by the British critical press.

Keywords:   Alexander von Humboldt, 19th-century British Science, 19th-century Scientific Publishing, Gender and Science, Popularising Scientific Knowledge
