    Some six years ago, we were able to buy a book collection from the Östanå mansion, some sixty kilometers north-east of Stockholm. The original owners were keen book collectors and the library consisted of a large number of exquisite green half morocco volumes. Most of these are already dispersed, but on the attic there were a number of volumes which had not yet found their way to the bookbinder. They are sewn and uncut in original wrappers. The contents are primarily contemporary facts and fiction, mostly Swedish but also some international works. In this catalogue we present 150 of these charming books.

    The catalogue is in Swedish, but we will be happy to provide English descriptions on request.

    In the middle of the 19th century Sweden was affected by years of bad crop and famine. Since Sweden was still a very much agricultural society, this lead to massive emigration, primarily to North America. This newsletter deals with works regarding among other things, presentations of America, such as travel guides, advertisements for ocean-liners, buffalo hunting, American Indians but also some older works on the new continent.
