This antique library reading chair was once found in the Cloisters Library from 11th century and spread over Europe.
Botanical Professor Carl Linnaeus made his private ‘Lecture Chair` in 1741,
when he was inspired by library chairs from in Leiden - Netherland.

He was Sweden´s first Ecolog - Carl Linnaeus - and used this selected lecture chair daily and had his popular ‘private lectures’ inside his private home on second floor in Uppsala.

The antique Original Lecture Chair of Linnaeus is still exposed today at his private home outside Uppsala at ‘Linnaeus Hammarby’. Today we also carpet one historical replica from 1741 - only for true fans of Carl Linnaeus.
