Other Artedian manuscripts survived to be published after his death. Merriman (1941) gives an account of the discovery of a copy of Artedi's manuscript on the Seba collection, a copy apparently which belonged to Seba's son in-law R. W. van Homrigh who eventually published the third and fourth volumes of Seba's Thesaurus. Also, as Engel has pointed out, a copy of Artedi's notes for Seba may have been in the possession of the Gronovius family; Laurens Gronovius mentioned this manuscript in his Museum ichthyologicum (1754). There is in the sale catalogue of the Museum Gronovianun (1778) also mention of two copies of Artedi's Ichthyologia, with many manuscript notes and annotations which Engel (1951) suggests implicitly may have been Artedi's notes or a copy thereof. Artedi's notes on Seba's fishes appeared in the third volume of Seba's Thesaurus, where many of the descriptions are plainly his work. Further Artedi works that survived for publication later were a treatise on mammals and an account of the fishes of the Baltic published by Nybelin (1934), and an early work of Artedi's dated February 24th 1729, on the plants of Nordmaling, which was published in 1905.
