Beautiful plates showing estates in the province of Södermanland, just south of Stockholm. Historically one of the richer areas of the country with fine mansions placed in a lush landscape of lakes and forests. The complete work was published in 19 parts containing 57 plates and a map. Each estate with one or two plates as well as a text description on the aspects of the manor. This part contains two plates of Hellefors, two of Stäringe and two of Tistad. Olof Enerooth (1825- 1881) was an author, liberal thinker and the father of swedish pomology. Fredrik Richardt (1819- 1895) was a danish artist known for his great accuracy which gives the plates in this work high historical value. He also made the originals to "Skånska Herregårdar" as well as a wide range of work in Denmark, Europe and the United States. Rare to find a part in its original wrapper.
