About this Item

2 volumes. 398p, [6]. 400p. Contemporary paper covered boards. The first volume contain 100 issues. The second volume is the revised version containing 50 issues of "Tryck Friheten Wälsignade" dated October 23, 1783 thru April 22nd 1784. The first volume also includes two issues of Dagligt Allehanda issue #173 and 184, 1782. The newspaper, Wälsignade Tryck was Swedish 18th century opposition newspaper published twice a week. The publisher writes in the second volume that bound copies of the first series are available for sale. The articles must have infuriated the Court because Creutz complained to the King in 1783 that it was unfortunate that the freedom of the press had been approved. Creutz, writes Åhlen, did not like the content in the newspaper, but admits that little could be done because the publisher writes his articles in a 'clever manner'. The King continued to be obsessed with the paper and its 'libelous' writing. But, it seems the Court managed to close down the newspaper shortly afterwards after threatening the publisher. Articles also include comments on America, Franklin and the French Revolution. See Åhlen 'Ord mot Ordningen' p130. Rather worn paper covered boards with a tear at the headbands of both volumes. The paper is rather thin and varied amount of foxing throughout. Front and rear blank leaves missing and old ownership signature on the inside front board scratched out. There are numerous contemporary black rubber stamps with the words 'Roten Frisk' with a broken tree branch underneath placed in the inner margins in the first volume. Rather scarce.
