A Book Exchange Across Borders

Andreas Kallström as an Agent for the Bergius Brothers in the 1760s

The article tells about a book exchange in 1765 between Peter Jonas and Bengt Bergius and an anonymous English gentleman through the help of Andreas Kallström, a Swedish student of botany and horticulture, during his stay in London 1764-1765 as a part of his studies. The correspondence between the Bergius brothers and Kallström shows that the exchange was unprofessionally handled and troublesome for Kallström. However, he manages to get the books that the brothers Bergius wished for before leaving London for Paris. The correspondence gives us also clues on the importance of the bookbindings, as well as other material aspects of the book, as part of the commerce with books during the later eighteenth century. Different aspects on the exchange of books across the Swedish borders give us a fuller picture of the commerce at the time.
