Description:

Map of Sweden with the following views: &#8216Stockholm&#8217,&#8216Norwegian Peasantry&#8217, &#8216Iron Mine of Dannemora, Upsala&#8217, &#8216Norwegian Laplanders (Winter Dress)&#8217, &#8216Norwegian Skielobere or Skate Runners&#8217, and &#8216Peasants of Sweden&#8217. Dannemora was one of the most important iron mines in Sweden and had a high reputation in England for its provision of iron ore to steel manufacturers there, including to the important steel city of Sheffield. Following the Napoleonic wars, Sweden gained control of Norway as part of the Treaty of Kiel (1814). Norway, however, declared its independence, adopted a constitution and chose a new king. The two countries then fought a war, with the end result being a Norwegian-Swedish union under a common monarch, with Sweden controlling the foreign affairs of the otherwise largely independent Norway.

John Rapkin (1813-1899) Rapkin was a mapmaker and engraver who is best known for his superb engraving on John Tallis publications.
