Captain Johan Stedmans dagbok öfwer sina fälttåg i Surinam; jämte beskrifning om detta nybygges inwånare och öfriga märkwärdigheter. Johan G. Stedman. Stockholm: Johan Pfeiffer, 1800.
First Swedish edition of Stedman’s Narrative. This is an abridged version of the first English edition made by Samuel Lorentz Ödmann. He based the translation on the two German editions: Hamburg 1797 and Halle 1797. Buku Bibliotheca Surinamica owns two copies of the Swedish Stedman. One is a nice half calf leather binding with gilt lettering on the spine. The second copy has poor paper wrappers. But this last copy does have the very rare coloured plate which is absent in most copies.
