Edition of the Journal de Paris (1782) of the botanist Jean-Pierre-Etienne Vaucher

Vaucher

Master of Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle in the Academy of Geneva, the Swiss pastor and botanist Jean-Pierre-Etienne Vaucher (1763-1841) was a key player in the botany of Geneva during the late eighteenth century in contributing by his activities to the birth of the Botanical Garden in Bastions by Candolle in 1817.

Vaucher has left in his family archives a wonderful travel journal still manuscript and unpublished, entitled "Journal de Paris (1782)", which relates his journey in the French capital in 1782.

As part of the celebrations to come in 2012 devoted to the tri-centenary of the birth of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, this project aims to product an annotated edition of this manuscript which for us reveals the influence of the author of "The letters on the elements of botany " and the phenomenon of the Enlightenment Swiss sensibility, first on the intellectual training of the naturalist, and secondly on the development of the descriptive natural history and botany in Geneva during the last decades of the eighteenth century.

Publications:

BUNGENER, P. & N. VUILLEMIN, with the collaboration of M. RATCLIFF (ed.) (2012). Jean-Pierre-Etienne Vaucher - Journal de mon séjour à Paris (1782). Genève, Editions Slatkine.
