Stockholm: Norstedt & Soner, 1857. 1st printing (cf. Forbes #2193, incorrectly noting an 1856 publication date). 27, [1] pp. Text in two columns, Swedish & English. 4to. 7-3/4" x 6-3/4". Lacks wrappers, with last leaf detached. Age-toning. The odd stain. A VG copy. Item #37152

This treaty between Hawaii & Sweden apparently one of the first, if not the first, international treaties ratified by Kamehameah IV [reigned 1855 - 1863].

NB. Forbes #2193 notes a date of 1856, listing the copy at Hawaii State Archives. We have checked that copy, which also has the 1857 date on p. 28. Both copies recorded by OCLC note an 1857 imprint date, as here.
