A rare work, especially complete, is “Suite d’estampes pour servir à l’histoire des mœurs et du costume des François dans le dix-huitième siècle”, with fine plates after Freudeberg and Moreau Le Jeune, one of the most famous book illustrators and engravers in France at this period.

Other interesting items are a dedication copy of the German expressionist George Grosz famous work Ecce Homo, a letter from composer Jean Sibelius with a musical quotation from his third symphony, Thomas Bewick’s British Birds with a dedication and George Catlin’s book with fine hand-coloured plates of indians.

We also offer some works from the library of Birger Strandell, the famous collector on Linnaeus, Thornton, “A New Illustration of the Sexual System of Carolus von Linnaeus” (London 1807), with the well-known mezzotinta engraving “Linnaeus in his Lapland dress”, a collection of British satirical prints showing emperor Napoleon I in caricature by artists Cruikshank, Woodward and Lee, and a few charming carte-de-visite photographs of one time famous American figure-skater Jackson Haines.
