Göran Rothman became a physician, botanist, translator and author... In 1770, whilst working as the supervisor for quarantines in Stockholm archipelago and residing in Stockholm, Abderhman- the envoy of Tripoli in Sweden- promised Rothman all possible support if he would accompany him on a travel to Africa... This idea was taken up by the Swedish Academy of Science who drew the proposals for this journey and promised to make a contribution towards the costs of this journey provided that he travels to visit North Africa and inner Africa to carry out studies and bring collections of local plants... The dates of his visit would coincide with the reign of Ali Pasha I who reined from 1754–1793... However, the promised financial support from both Abderhaman and the Swedish Academy of Science did not materialize to the extent that Rothman had to start thinking about returning back to Sweden shortly after his arrival in Tripoli. “The expedition was apparently not the idea of Linnaeus, but had been requested by an envoy in that region... The expedition was far from successful, and although not himself directly at fault for its failure, Rothman suffered misery for the remainder of his life... He died in Stockholm two years later on 4.12.1778. ” He spent the last two years as a teacher in the college of medicine and practicing physician... As a fan of literature, he published several successful works and translations... Work of Apostles who visited these places including Göran Rothman will be covered... Subtitle 1 is devoted to Göran Rothman's journal and letters on Sweden, Denmark, Tunisia and Libya... The main source for this section is his Journey to Tripoli in 1773 Translated from the Swedish manuscript; Resa till Tripoli år 1773 af G... Rothman... Once published, this first translation into English will be of great value to researchers with an interest in the history of that era.
