Large margins. A couple of small creases and spots in the outer margins. A very short tear in the lower margin. Nice condition.

Locks on the Gothia Canal rising from lake Roxen just outside Linköping. A sailing vessel on its way up the lock stair. A man is working one of the lock mechanisms. The lake as backdrop. Published for the work "Svenska Vuer", an abridged edition of the great work "Pittoresk resetour från Stockholm till Neapel". Billmark arrived in Paris as a young man and lived there for most of his life, working with the best artists and craftsmen of the time. He produced several lithographic albums of high quality, some depicting european sceneries and some sceneries of his native country. One of the best in his profession. Uncommon.
