Short summary:  Thanks for a list of the members of the "Svenska Läkaresällskapet"; thanks for Sallander's account of the addressee's library; thanks for information on Belgian booksellers; it is most appropriate that mention be made of the addressee's pricely gift to Uppsala University in "Svenska män och kvinnor", since "the Bibliotheca Walleriana is probably the greatest collection in the field of history of medicine and science that has been brought together by any private collector of our time, it exceeds in scope that of the Bibliotheca Osleriana and in point of size is almost double that of the Cushing collection"
