What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

Waller spared no expense in funding his interest, collecting approximately twenty thousand important books on science and medicine throughout his lifetime. This collection included one hundred and fifty incunabula and other early editions, all of which were left to the Uppsala University and its library after his death in 1955. These two volumes (containing Hans Sallander's competent and detailed record of Waller's collection) contains over fifty plates, illustrating the extensiveness of the collection. Complete with original dustwrapper.

Condition
