Item Description: Book Condition: Good. Köpenhamn, S. L. Møllers bogtrykkeri, 1836. 8:o. (4),+ 100 s. Rikt illustrerad med träsnitt i texten. Häftad, oskuren med tryckt omslag, något nött i ryggen. Fint exemplar av första upplagan av denna epokgörande bok! Här framlägger C. J. Thomsen (1788-1865), i sitt bidrag till boken, ?Kortfattet udsigt over mindesmærker og oldsager fra Nordens fortid? (s. 27-90), för första gången i tryck sitt revolutionerande treperiodsystem; stenåldern, bronsåldern och järnåldern, med definitioner och igenkänningsmärken. Systemet hade dock redan varit känt en längre tid. Redan i ett brev till J. H. Schröder 1818 berättar han om sin museiordning. Boken och artikeln fick snabbt spridning. Redan 1837 översattes den till tyska och på engelska utkom den 1848. I Danmark spreds systemet sedan genom Thomsens lärjunge J. J. A. Worsaaes arbeten och i Sverige hade Bror Emil Hildebrand redan i början av 1830-talet lärt känna och tagit benämningarna i bruk, även om han länge var något skeptisk till indelningen. Bokens andra större kapitel, ?Den oldnordiske literaturs omfang og vigtighed?, är författat av N. M. Petersen. Softcover / Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 89096

Item Description: Kjöbenhavn (Copenhagen), 1836. 8vo. Nice contemporary half calf with gilt red leather title-label and gilt spine. Vellum corners to boards. Ex libris to inside of front board. A nice and clean copy. Illustrated. (4), 100 pp. Scarce first edition of this milestone publication, which laid the foundation of modern archaeology and transformed it into an exact science. With this seminal publication, Thomsen was the first to establish an evidence-based division of prehistory into discrete periods, and with it he became the originator of the three-age system (the division into Stone Age - Bronze Age - Iron Age), which is "the basic chronology that now underpins the archaeology of most of the Old World" (Rowley-Conwy: From Genesis to Prehistory, p.1). This foundational work altered our understanding of our world and our place in it and contains the first use of "culture" in an archaeological context."Christian Jürgensen Thomsen, (born Dec. 29, 1788, Copenhagen, Den.-died May 21, 1865, Copenhagen), Danish archaeologist who deserves major credit for developing the three-part system of prehistory, naming the Stone, Bronze, and Iron ages for the successive stages of man's technological development in Europe. His tripartite scheme brought the first semblance of order to prehistory and formed the basis for chronological schemes developed for other areas of the globe by succeeding generations of archaeologists." (Encycl. Britt.).Up until the beginning of the 19th century, our understanding of antiquities had been very loose and fumbling. Studying the artifacts, earlier archaeologists had used a great deal of imagination, especially when adapting information from written sources to the objects. Only when Thomsen enters the scene, this approach changes. He is the first to focus the investigation upon the artifacts themselves. Quickly realizing that this approach must be the only way forward, he soon distinguished clearly between objects, both similar and different, and established what belonged together in time and where there were chronological differences. He was among the first to differentiate between history that could be studied through written sources and prehistory which could only be studied through material culture. He realized - as the first - that in order to interpret findings of prehistoric objects, one would have to know their source and the context in which they were found - thus establishing the foundation for modern excavation technique. He trained the great archaeologist J.J.A. Worsaae and sent him on excavation expeditions to acquire artifacts for ethnographic museum that he had founded and thus also founded Danish archaeology. Thomsen was the first to perceive typologies of grave goods, grave types, methods of burial, pottery and decorative motifs, and to assign these types to layers found in excavation, thus combining our different sources of knowledge to establish certainty. When, in 1836, the Royal Society of Northern Antiquaries published Thomsen's illustrated contribution to "Guide to Scandinavian Archaeology" (i.e. the present publication), in which he put forth his chronology for the first time, together with comments about typology and stratigraphy, Thomsen already had an international reputation. But this publication gave him more than that - it made him the founder of modern archaeology and arguably the most influential archaeologist of all times. In 1816 Thomsen had been appointed head of "antiquarian" collections, which later developed into the National Museum of Denmark. It was while organizing and classifying the antiquities for exhibition that he discovered how much more sense it would make to present them chronologically, and so he did, using what is now known as the "three-age system". Proposing that prehistory had advanced from an age of stone tools, to ages of tools made from bronze and iron was not in itself a novel idea, but no previous proposals allowed for the dating of artifacts (which Thomsen's sys.
