On offer is an original 1766 Swedish book, bound in contemporary marbelized papers over boards. While unable to translate research suggests this is a biography of Anders Carl Rutstrom who was a renowned professor of Theology, priest, author and activist. His work promoting Herrnhutismen also known as the Moravian Church saw Rutstrom banished from the Swedish realm. One online source provides: "This is a comprehensive story about the priest Anders Carl Rutström who was a member of the Hat Party. He became the subject of so many unfair and unreasonable persecutions that it reminds you of an inquisition. This work is an account of this remarkable campaign against Rutström, a campaign that did not end until after his death. Rutström’s Defense is also included. Rutström was forced penniless in exile in Germany and Denmark, where he was well received. When Hat Party was re-elected in 1769, he was recalled to Sweden, but was arrested in 1772 and died in prison just when he received word of the King." The boards are slightly rubbed and bowed but interiors are very good. Overall G+.
