Litografiskt Allehanda was published in five annuals. This is the final year. The work contains views, reproductions of art works, poems, songs and short stories of all kinds. The relatively low cost made it possible for ordinary people to come in touch with the art- and literary world, which at this time for the most part was a past time for the rich. It became popular in its time. It is uncommon to find this work in its original wrappers.The stamp of "Tullmuseum Dalarö" at the back wrappers.
