Salvia Småskrifter

In 2002 the Hans Rausing Professor of History and Science Tore Frängsmyr took the initiative to inaugurate a publication series Salvia Småskrifter with the aim to publish lectures arranged by the Office for History of Science at Uppsala University. The coinage Salvia is meant in memoriam of Sweden’s first scientific book printer Lars Salvius (1706–1773) as well as that it refers to a wild growing Swedish plant, Salvia pratensis, Meadow Clary.

Salvia Småskrifter no. 1–9 had been published under the auspices of Tore Frängsmyr. In 2007 the newly installed Hans Rausing Professor at Uppsala University, H. Otto Sibum, took over the editorship.
