Explanations to the map in the margin. Mentzer was the architecht behind a number of swedish atlases and single maps in the second half of the 19th. century. In 1860 he published a world atlas in folio. Several editions were printed. Mentzer also joined forces with the historian C. F. Wiberg to publish a historical atlas on Sweden as well as a historical atlas on the world, published in several editions. Mentzers work created important domestic competition to the all dominant german atlases and maps of the time.
