Ett Merkwardigt Stycke Af Konung Gustafs Then Forstes Historia [Gustavus I, King of Sweden]
Lorentz Ludwig Grefing, Stockholm 1754 - Stockholm: Lorentz Ludwig Grefing, 1754. Illustrated with two copper-engraved plates. Period (or slightly later) wraps. [9] + [5] +56 + [4], with pages 54 and 55 misnumbered as 44 and 45. In Swedish and Latin. Bibliotheca Historica Sveo-Gothica" #2963. With the interesting additional point of the King's stamp in red-orange on title page [see scan]. Engraved plates, entitled "underkladning" and "ofverkladning", appear to be of a type of chain mail tunic with two armholes. Light to moderate foxing to contents throughout, edge wear to wraps as well as a bit of crease wear at spine, else in remarkably good condition, Very Good. A history of King Gustav I, his imprisonment in Denmark, and his later escape to Lubeck, all before he became King through his expulsion of the Danes (ref.: Per Ralamb, of Rosenlund Rare Books). The first nine pages, prior to the 56 page text, are at times in very large typeface and with several exclamation points, perhaps indicating a nature inclusive of political exhortation or diatribe. L3--4 [Attributes: Soft Cover]
