About this Item: Tr. Hos Gjöthström & Magnusson. Ca 1836- 1850., 1850. 19 x 25,5 cm. Hand coloured lithograph. The original was painted and then lithographed by Wilhelm von Wright. "Skandinaviens Fiskar" has probably the finest hand coloring of any 19th century Scandinavian plate book. To study the coloring is extraordinary pleasant as the colours shifts, shimmers and gleams when turning the paper in different directions. Wilhelm von Wright is pherhaps (along with his brother Magnus) the most skilled Scandinavian zoology painter of all time. An erratum slip is pasted on top of the latin name. A small damage below the front upper fin. Paper browned. A tear in the paper in the upper right corner, repaired with transparent tape on the back. Two small paper slips on the back from a former mounting. Seller Inventory # 3787

Covers in cloth with gilt lettering. IV,222 pp. + 44 pp. (Bihang) + 2 pp. (Förklaring öfver Redskaps-Plancherna). With all 60 (numb. 1-60, but bound irregularly) lithographed plates depicting Scandinavian fishes (nearly all with one to each plate), of which 59 are in wonderfull original handcolouring + 3 engraved plates (A-C), uncoloured as always, depicting fishermen's tools (These 3 plates as usual a bit brownspotted).

The copy has only the text in Swedish, not the unfinished Latin text. It is often told that no titlepage was issued, but it is found in only a few copies, probably printed 1848 before the last of the 10 parts appeared. This copy is endowed with 2 titles being the original printed frontwrappers from 2 of the 10 parts in which the work was issued. First edition of THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ICHTYOLOGICAL COLOUR-PLATE BOOK IN SCANDINAVIA, and the most important of the many treatises on fish of the North European Seas.The work terrifically combines some of the most skilled ichtyological forces of the 19th century, but the special value of the work lies in von Wright's masterly illustrations, the colouring of which were done from live specimens. - "No work possesses the combination of so many excellent forces as "Fishes of Scandinavia". The illustrations are painted by Wilhelm von Wright after living species. The text is written partly by the traditionally educated Bengt Fredrik Fries and Carl Sundevall, partly by the field zoologist, the vicar Carl Ulrik Ekström, a 19th century man of the wilderness. The hand-colouring is of the finest quality." (Transl. of Björn Dal in Sveriges Zoologiska literatur, Biblis 1974).

Küsel (etched bookplate) Very rare work on the fish of Scandinavia: there is only one other copy listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years. The chief glory of this work is the series of excellent finely hand-coloured lithographs, the work of Wilhelm von Wright (1810-1887). He was a Finnish-born natural history painter, illustrator and lithographer of rare talent. The middle of three brothers who made their living as painters, illustrators or naturalists, he moved to Stockholm in 1828 to assist his eldest brother Magnus with his work on his Svenska Foglar. The publication of the present work (Wilhelm's masterpiece) began in 1836 and was completed with the help of his younger brother Ferdinand in 1857. One of the great early works on the ichthyology of northern Europe, it was issued in ten parts (including the supplement ) with the plates either uncoloured or finely hand-coloured (as here). Wilhelm von Wright, who had taken Swedish nationality in 1834, married in 1845, settled in Marieberg in Bohuslän, and spent the rest of his working life in Sweden. The text was started by the director of the Natural History Museum in Stockholm Professor Fries and, after his early death, was completed by C.U. Ekström and Fries' successor at the Natural History Museum Dr. Sundevall. BM (NH) II, p.622; Nissen Fischbücher 56; Nissen ZBI 1435. 1 volume (bound from the 10 original parts), quarto.
