upSUMMARY

Franciscus Ernst Brückmann assumed that Linnaeus has received his letter dated 4 May 1742 with Lorenz Heister’s dissertations. In another letter he sent the first part of the catalogue of Johann Heinrich Burckhard’s library, the Numophylacium Burckhardianum. and now he sends the second part.

Brückmann is still waiting for the minerals, the Flora Lapponica, De planta sceptrum Carolinum and plants which Linnaeus has promised him. He can send them via Carstens in Lübeck.

A catalogue of Brückmann’s works, which Linnaeus wished to see, is available in Magnalia Dei I-II.
