Lund, J. H. Schuboth, 1822. 8vo (19.5 x 11.2 cm). 124 pp. Contemporary dark blue half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with gilt lines and title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.
One of the first, if not the first Swedish book to adopt the Lamarckian system, which contained many more genera than in the obsolete Linnaean system. Written by the Swedish zoologist Sven Nilsson (1787-1883). A stamp of the American malacologist Richard Irwin Johnson (1925-2020) in the top margin of the title page. Light spotting to the first and last few leaves; otherwise a very good, clean copy in a nice, contemporary binding. Not in Caprotti.
