Ljunggren, Gustaf.

Karta öfver staden Skellefteå med dertill lydande egor på föranstalltande af committéen för undersökning af grunderna till städernas beskattning, efter vederbörligt förordnande, upprättad år 1857 af Gustaf Ljunggren.

På A. Bonniers förlag. Gen. Stab. Lith. Inr. 46 x 58 cm. Hand coloured lithograph.

Some foxing, and creasing, mostly to the margins. A couple of small losses to the margins.

A map of the town of Skellefteå in the north of Sweden with tables showing population, land use etc. It has an inset of the central parts of town. The map was published in "Atlas öfver Sveriges Städer" (Atlas of swedish towns) in 1862, containing 89 maps in all. The map was also sold as a single sheet. Gustaf Ljunggren started to work on the atlas in the early 1850s. In 1855 the publishing house Bonniers bought the rights and continued the work under Ljunggrens superintendence. The same year, some of the maps were awarded at the World Exposition in Paris. The government supported the project by guaranteeing a purchase of 1.300 copies of each map. All the maps were coloured by "Koloröser", women cololorists, in very attractive mild pastell tones.
