Description:

(10 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches). 13 engraved plates, plans and maps (comprising: 2 engraved portraits, 6 maps [4 folding], 5 plates and plans [1 plate printed in bistre]). (Occasional old repairs to folding maps, some light spotting to maps and plates. Contemporary half calf over marbled paper-covered boards, rebacked to style, recent endpapers First edition of a rare and important work: a scientific exploration, a description of the country at an important time in its history and a description of its people. The author intended this work as a compendium of available information about Sweden, mostly scientific. Thomas Thomson travelled 1200 miles in seven weeks, keeping a journal as he went. He was a well-regarded analytical chemist, a member of the Geological Society, the Wernerian Society, the Imperial Academy at St. Petersburg and a fellow of the Linnaean Society and the Royal Societies of London and Edinburgh, and a prolific author. He described his reasons for visiting Sweden in the first chapter: "My objects were not only to observe the manners and dispositions of the people, and the progress which they had made in the arts and civilization; but likewise to make a mineralogical survey of the country, as far as that could be done by hastily traversing it; to view as nearly as possible the state of chemistry in Sweden, and to make myself acquainted with the discoveries made in that science by the Swedes in the last ten years" (p.1). The interesting plates and maps include two stipple-engraved portraits of Swedish royalty, a large folding engraved general map of Sweden, a folding engraved map of Gothland, two folding engraved geognostic maps of Nerike and Sconia, a folding engraved plan of Stockholm, a full-page engraved plate showing the geognostic structure of the country, two views of the Hill Kinnekülle and the Mountain Taberg, two full-page engraved plans of the copper mine of Fahlun, and, printed in bistre, a fine full-page engraved plate of a falcon.
