Minor damage to spine, discreet stamp of Royal Society of Edinburgh, otherwise a very good copy. Contains a membership list of the Patrons and Members of Scandinavia's oldest natural history society, founded in Trondheim in 1760 and still going strong. This is essentially a biographical dictionary of Norwegians and other nationalities, with brief descriptions of their areas of activity and interest, occupations and bibliographic citations of obituaries etc. Curiously Carl von Linne, the distinguished Swedish naturalist, gets only the briefest mention: Professor i medisin og botanikk m.v. i Uppsala. The book concludes with a list of Gunnerus Medal winners and an alphabetical index to personal names. 184 pp.
