1 Bergsoe (Wilhelm) Fra den gamle Fabrik.
Kobenhavn: Reitzelske forlag (George C Gron), 1895. Semte gennemjete Augave. 
Blue cloth designed and lettered in gilt, pictorial design in black on gray on front cover. Marbled end papers. 2 volumes in one: 250 + 274pp. Pictorial extra title page illustrating a scientist in his lab, with a hunchbacked assistant in the background. Inner hinges cracked, wear to corners and hinges, a very good copy generally. The first edition was issued in 1869. A popular novel by the celebrated Danish author, which saw many editions. A translation of the title might be: From The Old Factory. It concerns the use of gold in a porcelain factory, and attempts to chemically alter it. The illustration on the binding and title depicts a laboratory scene with a sort of Frankenstein look to it - a scientist studies his test tube while the hunchbacked assistant labors in the background.
