Andra upplagan av Wolfius förbättrade utgåva av Krantz historik över de nordiska länderna, den första kom 1575, också tryckt av Wechsel. Den första latinska utgåvan kom 1546 (föregången av en tysk översättning 1545). Pseudonymen Christianus Cilicius Cimber, om det Ditmarskiska kriget, står för Henrik Rantzau. Albert Krantz (1448-1517), var dekanus vid katedralen i Hamburg och lärd historiker och teolog. Hans verk om de nordiska länderna hade stor betydelse för den svenska göticistiska historieskrivningen, inte minst för Johannes Magnus, och föreställningen att goterna och goternas krigståg var en del av den svenska historien. Överhuvudtaget var Krantz inriktad på de germanska stammarnas historia, med verk om vandalernas historia (utgivet 1519) och saxarnas (1520), skrivna på renässanshumanistiskt manér, med retorisk utsmyckning efter de antika historikerna. På slutet av Zieglers Skondia finns ett kapitel om Kristian II:s blodbad i Stockholm och Gustav Vasas maktövertagande. Här sammanbunden med tredje upplagan av Krantz motsvarande arbete om saxarnas historia, utgiven av Nicolaus Cisner. Den första kom 1520. Envoyén Gustaf d?Albedyhlls (1758-1819) boksamling ärvdes av hans son Carl Gustaf Eichstedt d?Albedyhll (1800-56), som därigenom tillsammans med egna förvärv byggde upp en mycket stor samling, f.f.a. inom nordisk historia. Denna samling skulle sålts på auktion 1843, men köptes i stället i sin helhet av Carl Jedvard Bonde, f.ö. samma år som denne efterträdde d?Albedhyll som överceremonimästare. I listan på kända personer, ?In hoc libro servantur:?, vilken troligen skrivits av sonen d?Albedyhll, återfinns Eric Benzelius d.y., J. H. Kellgren, A. M. Lenngren, E. Swedenborg, Gustav III, Melanderhjelm, Esaias Tegnér m.fl. Hardcover / Hardback. Seller Inventory # 60050

About this Item: 1575. Condition: Good. Contemporary vellum with MS title and leather ties, of which the upper one is defective. Front cover somewhat stained at top. Some dampstaining, a few sootstains, tear in upper margin on p. 431. Signature of Ulric Celsing, a nice copy from Biby Manor in Sweden. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 2497, the note, for the first work. Earlier editions of "Rerum Germanicarum" had been published in Basel 1548 och Köln 1574. Albert Krantz (1448-1517) was a learned German historian who published several chronicles on the history of Scandinavia and the Germanic territories in the spirit of Adam of Bremen. His works was read by among others Olaus Magnus, who refers to them in his own writings. The historian Matti Klinge has shown how Krantz's view that the Vandals of antiquity and the Swedish Wends were the same people influenced Gustav I of Sweden to add the King of Wends and Vandals to his title in an effort to strengthen his own legitimacy. Some of Krantz's chronicles were continued by David Chytraeus (1530-1600), a disciple of Luther, theologian and historian. Seller Inventory # 48321A

Panegyrick of the most Renowned and Serene Princess Christina, By the Grace of God, Queene of Swedland, Goths and Vandals.

Samtida nött skinnband med upphöjda bind och blindpressade ramar och dekor på pärmarna samt rödstänkta snitt. Försättsbladet delvis loss. Bläcknoteringar på titelbladets baksida och främre pärmens insida. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. ESTC R23369 resp. R209441. Warmholtz 4411, not. Bjurström 524. Det första arbetet är en engelsk översättning av ?Historia della sacra real Maestà di Christina Alessandra regina di Svetia?, gjord av John Burbery. Boken, som är en hyllningsskrift till konvertiten Kristina, handlar huvudsakligen om hennes abdikation och resa genom Europa till Rom, och utgör den huvudsakliga källan till kunskap rörande resan. Många detaljer härrör troligen från Kristina själv eller från hennes närmaste omgivning. Galeazzo Conte Gualdo Priorato (1606-78) var italiensk historiker och soldat. Han deltog i nästan hela det trettioåriga kriget, bl.a. under Moritz av Nassau och Wallenstein, men även på den protestantiska sidan. Efter kriget blev han diplomat och författare till ett flertal arbeten. Under en period var han även verksam som kammarherre hos drottning Kristina i Rom, utnämnd på rekommendation av Mondescalco. Det andra arbetets översättare W. L. Gent är förmodligen en pseudonym för William Lisle. Hardcover / Hardback. Seller Inventory # 64919

About this Item: 1702. Condition: Very good. Uppsala, (Rudbeckska tryckeriet), (1702)-03. Folio. (11,1 blank),20,1-48 pp. With woodcut illustrations in the text. Contemporary calf, somewhat worn, with raised bands, oxidized decor on spine, all edges gilt. Covers with double oxidized borders surrounding differently coloured panels. Endpapers with turkish marbling. Spine somewhat faded, joints starting at bottom. Minor superficial worming on front cover, covers warped. Title and preliminary pages with dedications somewhat browned. Occasional spotting, for example on pp. 35-36. Signatures of Eric Edman Johansson and Samuel Triewald, bookplate of Carl Jedvard Bonde. From Ericsberg Castle in Södermanland, Sweden. Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 6896. According to the renowned Swedish bibliophile Per Hierta, Lundius "Notæ" was, along with the fourth volume of Olaus Rudbeck's famous Atlantica, the last work produced by the Rudbeckian printing shop before the great fire in Uppsala in 1702. A large part of the edition was therefore destroyed by fire. Lundius had a new title-leaf and three different dedications printed in 1703, which were added to some of the remaining copies. These leaves are very rare but present in this copy. The papal bull in itself is a forgery which aims to show that the description of the Danaholm Treaty in the Code of Västergötland, with the Swedish king on horseback and the Danish king holding the bridle, is true, in contrast to the way the story is told in the Code of Scania, where the roles are reversed. The Swedish historian Nils Ahnlund has shown that the notorious liar Nils Rabenius, vicar of Hedemora, has left his calling card in the text, in the form of a reference to a delegate by the name of Rabbe, a fictitious medieval family who Rabenius claimed his own family were descended from. The list of boundary marks is carelessly edited, which means that the same marks reappears in different shapes, and that Västergötland's border to Småland is also included! Samuel Triewald (1688-1743), whose signature is found in this copy, was a writer, diplomat and member of the Swedish Academy of Sciences. His "Läre-spån uti svenska skalde-konsten" [Teachings in the Swedish art of poetry] was posthumously published in 1756. Seller Inventory # 46035A

About this Item: [Rome] [1820], 1820. 15 (of 20) etchings. Plate marks 20,5 x 47- 48 cm. The whole sheets 40,5 x 56 cm. Here we have fifteen etchings to the great work "Il Carnevale di Roma" executed by the swedish artist Count Hjalmar Mörner. This is probably the high point of Mörners production.The images can be mounted to form a long frieze, but it is also devided into sections. The first two etchings are free standing, showing the early stages of the Carnival at Piazza del Popolo, then we have the Carnival in full swing. After that follows the Carnival along Corson. Then we have the horse race and the candle party. The serie ends with one scene from the Aliberti theater (missing here) and one from an osteria. As mentioned the sequence is interupted since five plates are missing (number 7,8, 12, 17 and 19). The plates were printed by Francesco Burlié. Mörner lived for several years in Rome. Very large margins. Some minor creases, tears and dog s ears. Very nice condition. Seller Inventory # 2924
