Bid Count: None - "Suecia Antiqua et Moderna" Folio Available at Bukowskis with Current Bid of 10,000 kr

A rare and captivating item, an exquisite edition of "Suecia Antiqua et Moderna," is currently up for auction at Bukowskis. This standing folio, measuring 31.5 x 21 cm, features 87 out of the total 150 plates from the first volume depicting Stockholm and Uppland by Erik Dahlbergh.

Bound in a sturdy half-leather binding from the early 1700s, this remarkable copy stands out with its original title page variation labeled as "Moderna" before it was changed to "Hodierna." Although only the lower half remains intact, meticulously reconstructed using a tonal and thinned photographic copy of the National Library's title page, it blends seamlessly with the original portion.

The item does bear signs of age, including some tears, creases, stains, and repairs within its pages. The binding displays stained cover boards with worn edges but retains its five raised bands on the spine. Despite these minor imperfections, this piece continues to radiate historical significance.

Of particular note is the rarity of this exemplar due to its "Moderna" title page variant. Previously known through a unique example held by KB (National Library) with Klemming's inscription stating: "Ursprungliga titeln med 'Moderna' graverat före 1672. rariss unicum." Remarkably scarce offering incredible historical value.

With no previous bids recorded yet in this auction running until February 24th, data shows a current bid amounting to 10,000 kr solely. This presents an opportunity for collectors and aficionados alike to seize this extraordinary representation of Swedish architectural history.

Don't miss out on owning this mesmerizing piece; visit Bukowskis to place your bid and be part of the legacy preserved within "Suecia Antiqua et Moderna."
