Poetiska arbeten [Poetical works]. I-II.
1782 - Stockholm, A. J. Nordström, 1782-83. 8:o. Engraved portrait,(2),XVI,16,33-150,(2),151-362 pp. & 1 engraved plate. Med 3 engraved vignettes pasted into the text + (6),360,(2) pp. & 1 engraved plate. Med 1 engraved vignette pasted into the text. Two volumes in contemporary half calf, somewhat worn, with gilt spines, tan title labels, small green oval number labels and yellow edges. Spines with superficial cracks and chipped heads and tails, volume I with larger stain at rear joint. Corners bumped. Inserts somewhat foxed. First sheet and plate in the second volume misbound. The vignette to "Den sanna critiquen" is obviously supplied at a later date, darkened and with margins. Including the rare leaf "Underrättelse för bokbindaren" [Instructions for the binder] in the second part. Additional title page "Lyckönskningsvers" at p. 150 in the first volume supplied from another copy. Bookplate. Edited by Per Rudin and with a biography by C. F. Scheffer. Engraved plates and vignettes by D. Fehrman, E. Martin, J. F. Martin and J. Gillberg. One of the vignettes, "Den sanna critiquen", pasted onto p. 175 in volume II, is lacking in some copies, but is present in most cases and is therefore not the great rarity which it has sometimes been described as. With its illustrations this work is one of the finest examples of artistically made books from Sweden's Gustavian era. The poet, satirist and historian Olof von Dalin (1708-63) was one of the great renewers of the Swedish language during the 18th century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
