Abstract:
The first general censorship regulations in Sweden were issued in 1661 and 1662. Due to poor compliance and the expansion of the book market, they were repeated and reinforced in a renewed censorship statute in 1684. This was supplemented in 1688 with instructions for a newly established separate censorial office. Together, these two frameworks laid the foundation for the control of the book market in Sweden until 1766, when pre-censorship was abolished.
