About This Item

Stockholm [Holmia] Laurent. Ludo. Grefing. 1753, 1753. First edition. pp.[4], 20. Woodcut headpiece, initial, tailpiece. Some light browning, old ms. ink number '12' to corner of title-page. Disbound. In grey card folder. This short dissertation bears the name of Jacob Biuur but behind this attribution lies Biuur's professor, the eminent taxonomist Carl Linnaeus (1707-78). It was common practice at Swedish universities at this time for students to defend in public debate and pay for the printing of a dissertation for whose contents their professor was actually responsible. This should therefore be considered a supplement by Linnaeus himself to his Bibliotheca botanica of 1736 (reprinted 1751). In it, he updates his bibliography of botanical works, paying special attention to the 'Epoch of the Reformers' from 1735 onwards - that is, to works written after his Bibliotheca botanica. The last four pages include an interesting digression by Linnaeus on the effect of copper engraving on the price of books; in his view, the increase in precision which these provide is more than offset by the extra cost, which prevents poorer students from being able to afford them and leads the subject as a whole to 'luxury and ruin'. All the dissertations produced by Linnaeus were reprinted in the Amoenitates academicae (1762).

About Voewood Rare Books

Simon Finch has been a Rare Book Dealer since 1980. He has had shops in Notting Hill Gate, Mayfair and Holt, Norfolk. His firm has handled a wide variety of material from the First Folio of Shakespeare to the wilder shores of the counterculture and everything in between. In 1998, Simon bought Voewood, one of the finest Arts and Crafts and houses and brought it back to life with an eight-year programme of renovation and restoration. Voewood Rare Books, which operates from Voewood, is the continuation for Simon of a long career in the book trade. It also represents an important link with the House. Voewood is always beautiful, surprising, mysterious and perhaps a little disorientating and we aim to bring something of this spirit to the bookshop. Whilst our focus in on the visual arts, literature and the counter-culture, we deal also in a broad range of antiquarian and modern rare books across all subject areas. Our collection can be found here at Biblio and on our website. We are open by appointment and can always be contacted by email.
