Caption: Schlagintweit brothers. 1892 illustration of the German explorers Hermann (1826-1882), Adolf (1829-1857) and Robert (1833-1885) Schlagintweit. The Schlagintweit brothers are best known for the exploration of Central Asia. Their first joint publication was the accumulation of their study of the Alps: 'Neue Untersuchungen uber die physikalische Geographie und Geologie der Alpen' (1854). They were commissioned in 1854 by the East India Company to carry out scientific investigations in their territory, in particular to study the Earth's magnetic field. For the next three years, they travelled through the Deccan Plateau, India and up into the Himalayas, Karakoram, and Kunlun mountains. Hermann and Robert were the first Europeans to cross the Kunlun.
