Stockholms Auktionsverk - Rare Books, Maps & Manuscripts

decoration15 Dec. 2015
Some highlights at the upcoming Book Auction, mainly regarding Linnaeus and his disciples, come from the large collection of the diplomat and author Lars Bergquist. Among others there is a fine autograph signed letter by Linnaeus as well as his Hortus Cliffortianus and the disciple Artedi's wellknown work on fish, the Ichthyologia. You will find many books from the library of the late rare book dealer Björn Löwendahl who had a specific interest in the Far East. There are many interesting travel books and descriptions about Asia including China, India and Sri Lanka etc, and also books on languages and literature. Romeyn de Hooghe's impressive map of the Mediterranean, The British Herbal by Edwards, Gleanings of Natural History with fine hand-coloured plates and Esper's nice butterflies are also worth mentioning.
