[2], 20 & [1, engraved plate] pages; Instrumenta Graecorum rustica ex Hesiodo illustrata, adprob. ampl. ord. philos. in reg. academ. Upsal. praeside mag. Johanne Flodero ... pro gradu publico examini tradit Salomon Eklin, stip. reg. Wexionia-Smolandus, in audit. Gustav. maj. d. V. Maji MDCCLXXIX. Horis ante meridiem solitis. Small 4to. A rare dissertation, stiched and sewn as issued, never bound. With the engraved plate depicting Greek farm implements, with a printed legend recording names [in Greek letters] for 11 parts of these tools. Faint circular stain to the front cover, minor scrappyness to the uncut edges -- with trimming to the lower part of the gutter margin of the plate, to enable this leaf, slighlty larger than the text, to be folded. This disseration was defended by Salomon Eklin [1756-1803]. The thesis advisor was Johan Floderus [1721-1789], who spent most of his life at the University at Uppsala. Floderus was first a student at Uppsala in 1738, became Master of Arts there in 1743, he was appointed in 1752 to associate professor in Greek literature. Five years later he was promoted to lecturer in 1762 and to full professor in Greek. He was appointed in the year of this academic thesis, 1779, Vicar of Old Uppsala , and was named in 1786 as a member of the Academy of Letters. Several Library catalogues list him, mistakenly, as the author of this thesis; Swedish Wikipedia states that he "Presided" over 153 academic dissertations. Interestingly, RISM, the "Répertoire international des sources musicales" suggests that Salomon Eklin was also a Swedish composer of music. OCLC lists only one location [see OCLC Number: 249958845 -- copy at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin]. COPAC locates only the British Library copy. There appear to be four copies in Swedish institutions, and a copy at Helsinki University. While OCLC suggests that there are none in the U.S., Harvard's Houghton Library has a copy in a bound volume of 38 dissertations.
