Inbunden bok.

Mycket gott skick. Stockholm, literis Laur. Salvii [=Lars Salvius], 1757. Large 4to. [16] + 154 pp. + 6 engraved hand-coloured plates + 1 engraved vignette.
Full calf, marbled and polished, from c. 1900 by Gustaf Hedberg (Stockholm), spine elaborately gilt in compartments, upper edge gilt, else uncut. A trifle worn, front board and spine slightly sunned, but a beautiful and large copy from the Rockelstad library with the bookplate of Eric von Rosen.
Carl Clerck (1709‑1765) was one of Sweden’s most eminent entomologists in the Linnean era. The interest in insects and spiders had been awakened by Carl Linnaeus’ lectures at the House of Nobility in 1739, and Linnaeus later became his friend and collaborator.
Before publishing, Clerck sent his work on Swedish spiders to Linnaeus, who presented it at a meeting in the Scientific Society in Uppsala in November 1756. On the basis of this work, and on Linnaeus’ explicit recommendation, Clerck was made a member of the society. In the matter of publication, it was unfortunate that the society did not issue any transactions. Instead the Royal Academy of Sciences in Stockholm promised to assist with distribution and sales. Linneaus himself supplied a somewhat embellished extract from the protocoll of the presentation.
Backed by Linnaeus and two of the main scientific institutions in Sweden, Clerck ventured into something that had never before been attempted in his home country, namely to publish an illustrated plate book where the entire edition was hand-coloured. The plates were drawn for engraving after Clerck’s models by Eric Borg and engraved by Carl Bergquist. The same Eric Borg was then commissioned to color the edition’s total of 3,000 plates.
Svenska Spindlar was received with great acclaim, and that it was highly appreciated is proven not least by the fact that it was partly the basis of Thomas Martyn's magnificent spider book Aranei (London 1793).
Even more significant is that Svenska Spindlar marks a milestone in the history of science, as it is the first publication to consistently use the scientific classification and naming system for animal species that is still in force. It was not until the following year that Linnaeus launched the binomial system for zoology on a broad front in the tenth edition of Systema Naturae.
This copy comes from Eric von Rosen’s library at Rockelstad. The Swedish nobleman Eric von Rosen was an ethographer and collector, and had a great interest in animals and nature, which was reflected in his library. After the death of his wife Mary von Rosen in 1967, the book was inherited by her son Björn von Rosen. That he chose to keep this particular book from the rich library is not surprising, as he was active as a book artist and illustrator with animals and nature as constant themes.
