"Svea" var på många vis en utlöpare av "Swensk literatur-tidning" men avsedd att publicera längre och mera vetenskapliga artiklar än vad dess föregångare hade gjort. Palmblads idé var att Svea skulle undvika att allt för mycket sammankopplas med fosforisterna och "genom sin fridälskande form locka till inbjudande de allvarsamma männen". Innehållsmässigt orienterade sig "Svea" mer mot politik och samhällsliv och gav uttryck för den nya skolans politiskt konservativa prägel men i ett mindre polemiskt tonfall. Redaktör var i tur och ordning G. W. Gumælius, V. F. Palmblad och E. A. Schröder. Bland bidragsgivarna märks bl.a. Geijer, Almquist och Atterbom

      Sammandragen. Sthlm, C. Deleen, 1818. 4:o. (4),37 s. + HÄLLSTRÖM, C. P. Förteckning på de orters geografiska bredd och längd, i Vesterbottens höfdingdöme, som blifvit bestämde genom astronomiske observationer. Sammandragen. Sthlm, C. Delén, 1803. 4:o. 40 s. Trevligt samtida ngt nött grönt pappbd med handskriven oval orangefärgad pappersetikett på främre pärmen med texten: "Long-der och lat-der.". Rödstänkta snitt. Ryggen med skador. Fin lagning i nedre hörnet på s. 13 i det första arbetet. Det första arbetet interfolierat och med flera prydliga samtida tillägg och korrigeringar rörande norra Sverige och Norge. Med tillskrift på främre pärmens insida daterad augusti 1819: "Gåfva af baron S. G. Hermelin till S. P. Nordstedt" och tillägget "baron Hermelin afled i Stockholm den 4 mars 1820 i dess 76 lefnads år." Med flera löst bifogade handskrivna blad.. På s. 35-37 i det första arbetet återfinns longituder och latituder för orter i Norge, vilka kompletteras med två tätskrivna sidor noteringar. Carl Peter Hällström (1774-1835) var bördig från Ilmola socken i Vasa och har av Ekstrand i "Svenska lantmätare" kallats "Sveriges förnämsta kartograf". Han gjorde en mängd forskningsresor i Sverige och Finland, resor som sammantagna uppskattats till ca 8000 mil. Hällström blev i Bergskollegium bekant med S. G. Hermelin hos vilken han blev informator och som 1797 bekostade Hällströms geografiska ortsbestämningar i Sverige och Finland. Åren 1798-1818 utarbetade Hällström 22 kartor i det Hermelinska kartverket och det var i mångt och mycket Hermelins frikostighet som möjliggjorde Hällströms forskning. Bland de bifogade handskrivna bladen återfinns ett kortare odaterat brev från C. P. Hällström till "herr ingenieuren Nordstedt" angående Umeås läge, "Latituder och longituder af ställen i Sverige, Norrige och Finland - utdragit af Hällströms annotationer", "Längdbestämmelse af Backen i Brunflo socken i Jemtland" och ett blad med överskriften "Phaenomenerne som blifvit observerade" som bär Johan Törnstens namn. Det sistnämnda rör observationer gjorda under 1770-talet i Lund, St. Petersburg och Uppsala jämförda med egna observationer gjorda i Backen i Brunflo samt sedan omräknade till Frösöns horisont. Johan Törnsten (1738-96) var extra ordinarie lantmätare i Västernorrlands län. Han bestämde läge och stadsplan för Östersund. Ekstrand nämner att Törnsten genom kungligt brev 1770 fick uppdraget att göra longitudbestämningar i Jämtland genom observationer på Jupiters månar, vilka är antecknade på detta blad

        Don Quixote de la Mancha (4 volumes)

      London: T Cadell & W Davies, 1818.. Illustrated by Robert Smirke. First Thus. Leather Bound. Very Good. PUBLISHING DETAILS: First edition thus of Cervantes masterpiece, published in four volumes by T Cadell & W Davies of London in 1818. Size; 24 x 15 cms (9.5" x 6"). Weight; 4.21 kilos (10 pounds 9 ounces) N.B. additional shipping costs will apply. 1744 pages, all edges gilt. 48 plates by Robert Smirke. CONDITION: I would rate this set as very good. The full Moroccan leather covers, with gilt tooling and titles and 5 raised bands to the spines, are generally sound and clean, though with some splitting to the top fore-edges of the spines to vols 1, 3 & 4 and bruising to the corners. The bindings remain tight and secure throughout save for surface cracking to the inner hinges. The text and illustrations are generally clean and bright, with some light foxing here and there, light offsetting from the plates and slight staining to the inner bottom corners of some of the plates (not affecting the illustrations). The endpapers are lightly foxed but free from labels or inscriptions. The gilt edges to the page blocks are particularly good, with just light dusting to the top edge. All in all, this is a very handsome early edition of this cornerstone of western literature. THE NOVEL: Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading romances of chivalry that he determines to become a knight errant and pursue bold adventures, accompanied by his squire, the cunning Sancho Panza. As they roam the world together, the aging Quixote's fancy leads them wildly astray, tilting at windmills, fighting with friars, and distorting the rural Spanish landscape into a fantasy of impenetrable fortresses and wicked sorcerers. At the same time the relationship between the two men grows in fascinating subtlety. Often considered to be the first modern novel, Don Quixote is a wonderful burlesque of the popular literature its disordered protagonist is obsessed with. Miguel de Cervantes's mock-epic masterwork was voted the greatest book of all time by the Nobel Institute. The 48 plates and occasional vignettes are by the English painter and illustrator Robert Smirke (1752-1845), whose daughter, Mary, translated this edition. Smirke's pictures were usually of small size and painted in monochrome, as being best adapted for engraving. As well as Don Quixote, he provided illustrations for the Bible, 'The Picturesque Beauties of Shakespeare' (1783), Johnson's 'Rasselas' (1805), 'Gil Blas' (1809), the 'Arabian Nights' (1811), 'Adventures of Hunchback' (1814) and the British poets, especially Thomson. His works are characterised by good drawing, refinement, and quiet humour. (Source: Wikipedia)
