Here we have some very romantic images of royal castles in the greater Stockholm area. The castles are: Haga, Carlberg, Rosendal, Drottningholm, Rosersberg, Tullgarn, Ulriksdal, Gripsholm and Strömsholm. The book was issued in two free standing sections - "Kongl. Lust Slotten" and "Utsigter af Stockholm" - under the common title "Swenska Landskap". Here we have "Kongl. Lust Slotten only". Gustaf Söderberg lithographed the plates after his own originals. He was an officer, painter, sketch artist and lithographer. He made artistic journeys to Paris and Italy and eventually became the head of The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts.
