Four volumes. 19th century marbled paper over flexible boards with large labels titled in manuscript to uppers. Occasional annotations. Bindings slightly worn. Minor browning, foxing and staining. In very good condition overall. . "The largest portion of Spohr's chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr's own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled "Quatuor brillant"), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments. At its most baneful, Spohr's virtuosity induced him to slip into predictable passage-work in the linking sections between the main tonal centres of his sonata form movement... There are, however, many examples of brilliance without vapidity in these works and his imagination seems particularly to have been stimulated by less usual combinations." Grove online

        Försök til en flora oeconomica Sveciæ eller swenska wäxters nytta och skada i hushållningen.

      I-II. Lund, J. Lundblad, 1806. 8:o. (2),VIII,414 + (2),415-778,(22),779-92,(2) s. Två charmiga samtida hfrbd med rikt guldornerade ryggar med stiliserade blommönster, benvit respektive ljusbrun titeletikett och grön respektive ljusbrun deltiteletikett. Del II med gula snitt. Ryggarna i lite olika nyans och ngt blekta. Liten fuktfläck i övre snittet på del I. Banden uppenbarligen bundna vid olika tillfällen och de skiljer sig åt i en mängd små detaljer, bortsett från de ovan beskrivna skillnaderna, och är även i formatet aningen avvikande. I stort bra inlagor. En liten tryckfärgsplump har orsakat viss textförlust nedtill på s. 93 och fukt från övre snittet har trängt in i övre marginalen på s. 321-56 och lämnat en svag fläck samt en del spegeltryck mot slutet av del I. Del II har några sotfläckar på s. 653-54. Bra ex. med Magnus Flincks namnteckning och von Dübens exlibris.. Krok Svensk botanisk litteratur 22a med avvikande kollationering. Hebbe Den svenska lantbrukslitteraturen 1093. Innehåller även bihanget "om äpple- och päronträds skötsel". Boken är uppställd alfabetiskt. Arbetet, som var understött av Vetenskapsakademien, är tillägnat "landtmän af alla stånd och willkor" och beskrivs av Sten Lindroth som "en handbok för agrara självhushållare, vilken alfabetiskt efter de latinska namnen behandlar alla vilda svenska växter som skapats till människans nytta eller skada. Där kunde allt inhämtas om foder- och oljeväxter, kryddväxter, färglavar, virkesträd, pilhäckar, nödbröd och krusbärsvin; boken var länge ett standardverk." Magnus Flinck (1758-1814) var en skicklig jurist och ämbetsman och gjorde en enastående snabb karriär. Vid 23 års ålder var han titulär landssekreterare, vid 27 ordinär sådan och vid 34 var han titulär lagman. Under denna karriär avverkade han även borgmästarposten i Landskrona, men avancerade därifrån på förmyndarregeringens initiativ till rikets ärendens allmänna beredning. Flinck hamnade dock i onåd hos Gustav IV Adolf, och när denne besteg tronen tvingades han lämna beredningen. Trots detta var Flinck högst delaktig när den svenska lagboken översattes till tyska 1807 för svenska Pommern. Mot slutet av sitt liv var han lagman i Skåne och arbetade med en revision av utsöknings- och rättegångsbalkarna. Denna blev dock aldrig helt färdigställd. Under hela sitt liv var Flinck dessutom en flitig boksamlare. I biblioteket på det av hans hustru ärvda Vegeholms gods fanns utöver juridik även stora samlingar av bl.a. historia och vitterhet. Efter Flincks död flyttade änkan Gunilla Lindros biblioteket till Rögle och senare till Ängelholm. Det köptes 1868 av Magnus Flincks, i sitt första äktenskap, barnbarn Carl Bernhard Ulrik von Düben. Biblioteket ställdes senare upp på von Dübens Södra Lindved, där det fanns kvar till dess huvuddelen såldes på Libris bokauktioner 1982-85. De trevliga banden är helt säkert bundna hos Berggrens bokbinderi i Lund
