Previously owned by Bolle Willum Luxdorph (1716-1788), who had had the books luxuriously bound and marked with his seal: an elephant with crowned trunk. Luxdorph was a productive writer and politician, but is most well-known for his vast collection of books. He held some 15000 titles, of which 900 offer insight into a unique period in history: the Danish declaration of Free Press in 1770. - Schweiger II, 844 & 849; Dibdin II, 368.
