Stockholm, P. A. Norstedt & Söner, 1849 [-1851]. 8vo. Lithographed title + 394 pp.
Somewhat later quarter black calf; stamps, shelf-marks and a catalogue card from Kalmar stadsbibliotek in a pocket. An old envelope containing a few newspaper cuttings about Rudbeck pasted to front free endpaper.
Front blue wrapper bound in, inscribed in ink by the author: “Till Hr Professor Beckman från hans vän Författaren”. With neat corrections in ink on pp. 83, 85-7, 100, 125, 178, 203, 208, 259, 271, & 333, apparently by Atterbom.
A rare separate issue of this text, which also appeared in vols. 23 & 24 of the transactions of the Swedish Academy (Svenska Akademiens handlingar ifrån 1796, 1850 & 1851, pp. 314–580 + lith. front. & 1-125 respectively).
The present separate emission was also printed in two parts, and it seems likely that it was only issued upon completion of the printing of vol. 24 of the transactions in 1851. A printed note on p. 271 in this copy refers the reader to “page 501 of the previous volume”, which has been corrected in ink to “page 191”, which is the correct page number in the separate edition.
