The publication of selected dissertations clearly shows the
versatility of Linnaeus the scientist.
and his disciples
One of the main tasks for the Swedish Linnaeus Society upon its
foundation in 1917 was the publication of the writings of Linnaeus
and his disciples. Most of the publications are in Swedish.
Over the years, The Swedish Linnaeus Society Yearbook (SLÅ)
has dealt with other topics from medical and natural history,
and studied the generations immediately before and after Linnaeus.
In addition, two series were begun, Skrifter utgivna av Svenska
Linnésällskapet (Writings Published by the Swedish
Linnaeus Society) and Valda avhandlingar av Carl von Linné
i översättning utgivna av Svenska Linnésällskapet
(Selected Dissertations by Carl Linnaeus in translation published
by the Swedish Linnaeus Society), however both were discontinued
after one or two issues. The publication of Selected Dissertations
restarted in 1947 and continued until 1973.
Among the other publication projects one can mention Resa till
Lycklige Arabien, Petrus Forsskåls dagbok 1950, Diary
of a journey to Arabia Felix, Petrus Forsskål). Together
with Uppsala University, in 1943 The Society published the tenth
volume of Linnés brevutgivningen (Linnaeus’ published
correspondence), vol II:2, Den utländska brevväxlingen,
Brugmans-Burman (Foreign correspondence, Brugmans-Burman). Since
1995, The Society has had overall responsibility for the re-started
publication of Linnaeus’ letters.
