It is believed that Johann Christian Peter was the eldest son of Peter von Heidenstam and Kristina Weber. The SIA has three items relating to Johann Christian Peter - the first is his father's 1754 letter to Carl Linnaeus, asking the great scientist to tutor Johann; the second is his 1758 Uppsala dissertation on Quinine (argued in front of Linnaeus - PDF of scanned original in Latin here) and the third is his moniker as publisher and translator of his father's 1766 work "Description of the Royal Traveling Pharmacy".
