Övrigt

Johannes Schefferus (1621-79) was a professor at Uppsala university, and his account of Lapland, the first substantial work on the Sami, was extremely successful. The first edition (1673) was in Latin, followed almost immediately by English, German and Dutch editions. The first Swedish edition appeared only in 1956.
