Bok v15

Some of the highlights on the upcoming Book Auction are the large collection of the diplomat and author Lars Bergquist, mainly regarding Linnaeus and his disciples. Apart from a fine autograph signed letter by Linnaeus, we offer his Hortus Cliffortianus and the disciple Artedi's wellknown work on fish, the Ichthyologia amongst others.

We also offer 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 travels or descriptions about Asia including China, India and Sri Lanka etc, and also books on languages and literature about paper.

Romeyn de Hooghe's impressive map of the Mediterranean, The British Herbal by Edwards, Gleanings of Natural History with many fine hand-coloured plates and Esper's nice butterflies are also worth mentioning.

You will also find a letter from Marlene Dietrich to Ingmar Bergman, a 17th century arabic manuscript, and some fine photographs showing a Fabergé exhibition by Russian photographer Karl Bulla.
