Der Schmetterlingskoffer: Die tropischen Expeditionen von Arnold Schultze


Hanns Zischler und die Illustratorin Hanna Zeckau entdeckten im Berliner Naturkundemuseum einen verwaisten überseekoffer - bis an den Rand gefüllt mit Schmetterlingen! Gut achtzehntausend Falter aus dem kolumbianischen Hochland, einer schöner als der andere, gesammelt und verpackt in Hunderte von Zigarrenkistchen von dem Forschungsreisenden Arnold Schultze.Zischler und Zeckau entfalten sorgsam und neugierig die Papiere, in die die Schmetterlinge eingepackt sind - und tauchen ein in die Welt von Arnold Schultze, lesen seine Tagebücher, Notizen und Aufsätze. Sie lernen einen erstaunlichen Forscher und Schriftsteller kennen, der durch seine sensible Beobachtungsgabe eine geradezu ansteckende Lust daran verbreitet, fremde Länder, Pflanzen und Tiere zu erkunden. Ihn, seine Schriften, seine Schmetterlingssammlung - und die Freuden der Beschäftigung mit der Natur stellen Hanns Zischler und Hanna Zeckau in diesem durchgestalteten, durchgehend vierfarbigen Band vor.
