About meFriedrich Wilhelm Christian Karl Ferdinand Freiherr von Humboldt (1767–1835) was a Prussian minister and diplomat, a philosopher, and a linguist.
About my libraryAfter his death, Humboldt's library was donated to the Berlin State Library, which passed on duplicates to other libraries. Many of those remaining in the State Library were lost in World War 2. A catalogue of Humboldt's original library has been compiled by Christa Schwarz, former head of the historical holdings of the Humboldt University Library.
