Notæ ac observationes in literas rom. pontificis - LUNDIUS, CARL - 1702. [1230242]
1702 - Uppsala, (Rudbeckska tryckeriet), (1702)-03. Folio. (11,1 blank),20,1-48 pp. With woodcut illustrations in the text. Contemporary calf, somewhat worn, with raised bands, oxidized decor on spine, all edges gilt. Covers with double oxidized borders surrounding differently coloured panels. Endpapers with turkish marbling. Spine somewhat faded, joints starting at bottom. Minor superficial worming on front cover, covers warped. Title and preliminary pages with dedications somewhat browned. Occasional spotting, for example on pp. 35-36. Signatures of Eric Edman Johansson and Samuel Triewald, bookplate of Carl Jedvard Bonde. From Ericsberg Castle in Södermanland, Sweden. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 6896. According to the renowned Swedish bibliophile Per Hierta, Lundius "Notæ" was, along with the fourth volume of Olaus Rudbeck's famous Atlantica, the last work produced by the Rudbeckian printing shop before the great fire in Uppsala in 1702. A large part of the edition was therefore destroyed by fire. Lundius had a new title-leaf and three different dedications printed in 1703, which were added to some of the remaining copies. These leaves are very rare but present in this copy. The papal bull in itself is a forgery which aims to show that the description of the Danaholm Treaty in the Code of Västergötland, with the Swedish king on horseback and the Danish king holding the bridle, is true, in contrast to the way the story is told in the Code of Scania, where the roles are reversed. The Swedish historian Nils Ahnlund has shown that the notorious liar Nils Rabenius, vicar of Hedemora, has left his calling card in the text, in the form of a reference to a delegate by the name of Rabbe, a fictitious medieval family who Rabenius claimed his own family were descended from. The list of boundary marks is carelessly edited, which means that the same marks reappears in different shapes, and that Västergötland's border to Småland is also included! Samuel Triewald (1688-1743), whose signature is found in this copy, was a writer, diplomat and member of the Swedish Academy of Sciences. His "Läre-spån uti svenska skalde-konsten" [Teachings in the Swedish art of poetry] was posthumously published in 1756. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
