A swedish historical atlas covering "Medeltiden och Nyare Tiden" (the middle ages and the modern era ). The atlas has its very own characteristic compared to most contemporary equivalents - with several insets and different lay outs and a lovely toned down pastel colouring. At least five editions were published. Mentzer was the architecht behind a number of swedish atlases and maps in the second half of the 19th. century.
