Rare first and only edition of this thesis defended by Petrus Magnus Acksell on 13 June 1823 in the Auditorium Botanicum of the University of Uppsala, presided over by the famous Uppsala professor Carl Peter Thunberg (1743-1828), who undoubtedly deserves much of the credit for this short text on the fauna of China, including a catalogue of the principal mammals (including tigers), birds (including falcons), fish (including Asian carp), amphibians, insects and molluscs native to China.
Very good, spotless copy. L.C. Rookmaker & I. Svanberg, "Bibliography of Carl Peter Thunberg", in: Svenska Linnésällskapets årsskrift, 1992-1993/Yearbook Sw. Linnaeus Soc. (1994), pp. 7-72, at p. 65, no. 493.
