Summary notes:
Other notes:
There are three copies of this work in the British Library, of which the Grenville copy has in gold letters on the front cover : Perlllustrl. ac splendidissimae Universitati Upsaliensi hunc Llbellum consecravit Fr. de Baltimore. This copy apparently did not reach its destination, and the Royal University of Upsala has purchased a copy to replace the other. Plate XIll is entitled : Llnnaeus brought forth Nature from obscurity. The Bindley copy has 21 plates. The Grenville copy (G. 18291) has 22 plates. The BM copy (647.1.7) has 21 plates. The BM copy (647.1.8) has 14 plates. The Grenville copy has an additional plate, Palatium Regale Hafniae, opposite p. i, but does not contain the double plate of (?) Moscow, found In the other three copies, opposite p. xviii. The double plate of The Flying Mountains (Montagnes russes) is probably the first engraving of a Switch-back railway. There are four variations in text in these four copies: 1. p. xvii. line 191. In the Bindley copy and in the BM copy (647.1.7.) camoenis has been erased, and flagellum substituted In ink. 2. p. xxiv. line 22. In the Bindley copy advenit replaces the nunc venit of the other three copies. 3. p. xxiv. line 25. In the Bindley copy, tetra Cupido replaces vincta Cupido of the other three copies. 4. p. xxv*. line 70. In the Bindley copy Mox quoque replaces hic dum of the other three copies. The Royal University Library, Upsala, also possesses two variants (one from the library of J. H. Liden), without the Letters, in which the Venatio Livonica has, respectively, 74 and 96 lines.
NHM GENERAL - Presented by Basil H. Soulsby. 27.ii.1931. B. Quaritch. £19.16.0.
Frederick Calvert, sixth Baron Baltimore (1731-1771), author and libertine, charged with rape in 1768 but acquitted for lack of evidence.
NHM GENERAL - Loose piece of paper between the front endpapers appears to be an undated auction catalogue entry of a book on the trial for rape of Lord Baltimore. Small paper label with '764' on it, pasted to the bottom of a preliminary page. Pasted to another preliminary page is the first page of a letter from Quaritch to Soulsby dated 20th February 1931, comparing the NHM copy with the three British Museum copies, detailing the variations.
NHM GENERAL - Red morocco binding with gold tooling and dark blue endpapers. Spine has raised bands. Edges are gilded.
