Scandinavian printing in London in the eighteenth century and its social background

2002

Abstract

A mere twenty-five items in Scandinavian languages have so far been identified as printed in London during the eighteenth century. Nine of these are in Danish, published between 1705 and 1793; one is in Icelandic, printed in 1788; while the rest are ephemera in Swedish that appeared during the years 1780-1800. All are directly related to the activities of the Scandinavian community that had emerged in London during the decades after the Great Fire of 1666, When imports of timber and metals expanded, first in order to rebuild the city and subsequently to meet the needs of the expanding British economy.
