He stayed for three years at the Cape before joining a Dutch voyage via Batavia to Japan, arriving in Nagasaki in August 1775. He was confined to Deshima (the Dutch trading post on the artificial island in the bay of Nagasaki) for much of the time but was eventually allowed ashore to make botanical excursions. In the spring of 1776 he participated in a mission to Edo (Tokyo) to meet the emperor. Then he was able to study and collect specimens of local plants and seeds. On the return voyage he visited Java and Ceylon. Later Thunberg succeeded Linné as professor at Upsala. A glossary of Swedish and Japanese, and a vocabulary of the Malay language (called an Arabic dialect) are included. Cordier BJ 445 & BI 1384. Mendelssohn ii, 499. Pritzel 9259.

TORQUATO (ARQUATO), ANTONIO etc.:
Prognsosticon de eversione Evropae, & alai quaedam, quorumca talogum sequens do cebit pagina. Antverpen, apud Martin Nutium, 1552.
. 16mo. Lvs 51. Old marbled paper covered boards, restored, spine with title label in manuscript, bottom of spine chipped. Copy of Ericsberg castle. A compilation of smaller treatises on Europe and the Orient. Comprises: "Prognosticon d. Magistri Antonij Torquati, artium & medicinae Doctoris Ferrarien. Clarissimiq; astrologi, de euersione Europae ... MCCC.LXXX. direxit"; "Europae descriptio" by Anselmus & Christophorus Cella; "De fide & religione, moribvsqve & caeromoniis Aethiopum" by Franciscus Titelmans; "Legatio Magni Indorum" by D. a Gois; "De origine regvm Turcarvm compendiosa quaedam perioche, per Andream à Lacuna Secobiensem, collecta"; and "De Turcarvm cvltv ac moribus enarratio quaedam breiuscula". Arquato's Prognosticon first appeared in 1534, without given place or printer, and was presumable inspired by the Turks' failure before Vienna in 1529 and their subsequent reverses in Austria and Syria in 1532. It's likely to have been intended as propaganda for Charles V's crusade against Tunis in 1535. Antonio Torquato was a Ferrarese physian and astrologer. This prophecy became popular, frequently reprinted and translated into several languages. Kenneth Meyer Setton: "Western hostility to Islam, and prophecies of Turkish doom", pp. 26-27. Göllner Turcica iii, pp. 341-42. Gois' "Legatio Magni Indorum Imp." was first published in 1532 (Antverpen) with an English edition appearing in 1533. It comprises pages 28 - 45 of this work, including the part about the Lapps "De Pilapiis" (pp. 44-45). It is a reprint of the first edition.
