A beautiful view of some of the northern mountains of Sweden. The engraving was published in Samuel Gustaf Hermelins work "Specialkartor och ritningar till beskrivning öfver Sverige" in1806. It was also a part of Hermelins work "Lappska kläder och utsigter af fjällen i Lappmarken" 1806-1808, and sometimes it is found in Hermelins atlas "Geografiske Kartor öfver Swerige". The original was sketched by the artist Carl Magnus Robsham (later knighted Robson). He travelled extensively in the northern parts of Sweden. The plate was executed by Fredrik Akrel, a skilled and very prolific engraver. Scarce.
