Peter Forsskal: Thoughts on Civil Liberty
 
 
 
     
  Peter Forsskal maintained two libri amicorum* which are in the Royal Library, Manuscript Department, Copenhagen  
     
  Their shelf-marks are (a) Thott 556 8° and (b) Thott 557 8°.  
     
  Thott is the Thottska samlingen/Thottska collection. Thott´s Collection ' was acquired by the Royal Library as a bequest from count Otto Thott after his death in 1785. In the collection are a considerable number of manuscripts from the Middle Ages, many of which are illuminated.' (http://www.kb.dk/en/nb/samling/HA/hs_samlinger/index.html.and also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_Thott).  
     
  For Count Otto Thott see http://runeberg.org/dbl/17/0338.html  
     
  The libri amicorum are now accessible online, see:

  David Shaw writes, ‘The entries in the book all follow a formula: a literary quotation (Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, French, Italian, English ...), a greeting with the name of the friend, and (importantly) the date and place where the entry was written’  
     
  There follows the tabulation of the chronological dates of entry and the location, (c) David Shaw  
     
  *'Thott-8-557 has two separate sections. There is the last page of an incomplete index to the first half on page 128 (image 138). Page 129 starts a new inserted section on slightly larger paper with an index on pages 275-282 covering the entire volume. The pagination seems to be written by Forsskål as it is used in the index. There are errors (or possibly missing pages)' (David Shaw)
