Swedish Miniature Books
- Does anyone have information about Swedish miniature books?
A book (not miniatures) collector in Sweden has 5 copies of a miniature book
called Ftitiofs Saga. It was published in 1959 by the publishing company
Allhelm. It contains 12 photogravures and is bound in blue leather.
The collector believes that it is the only modern Swedish miniature book.
Does anyone know of any others?

- Dear Miniature friends,
We, the new owners of Catharijne Press Miniature Books, have found
your newsgroup and I've done a little bit of homework regarding
For those of you wanting to know more of 'Fritiofs Saga', look at
Bondy, p. 180. On p. 181 Bondy also mentions a 'Codex Argenteus'.
In Doris Varner Welsh's 'A Bibliography of Miniature Books (1470-
1965)' I found the following Swedish books:
no. 734: Svenska Psalm Boken (Götheborg, 1833)
no. 1972: Codex Argenteus (Uppsala, 1959)
no. 6513: Stockhholms Almanach (Stockholm, 17--)
no. 6631: Fritiofs Saga (Malmö, 1959)
The 'Svenka Psalm Boken'is also listed in Spielmann, no.471a.
