Chapter Summary

Most of the medical works in the book collections of the physicians were written by seventeenth-century authors, as were the majority of the books owned by clergy. The majority of books in Dons's collection also seem to have originated in German territories, the Netherlands, and Copenhagen. The book collections of Dons, Woldenberg and Blumenthal also provide evidence of a medical field in evolution. The book collection belonging to military surgeon Joachim Frederik Rosum, auctioned off in 1791, included a range of bibliographies, in addition to several newer works on surgery and anatomy, such as Medizinische und gelehrten Lexicon, Medisinische Bibliotek and Chirurgisches Lexicon. The book collections discussed in this chapter as indicative of general trends, it appears that the market for medical books in early modern Norway is marked by a high level of internationalisation.
