A fine view of the estate Skebo, published for "Uplands Herregårdar" (60 plates and text issued in parts between 1877 and 1881). The work depicts estates of the district of Uppland just north of Stockholm. The area has always been one of the richest in Sweden, and subsequently has many fine estates. The lithograph was executed by Alexander Nay who was a very productive and skilled artist. Nay lithographed plates to many important plate books in Sweden and Denmark. A few examples are "Sverige Framstäldt i Taflor" 1856, "Herregårdar uti Södermanland" 1869 and "Upsala" 1870 and 1877.
