[Plate] Skjöldebrand, A. F. / Martin J. F.

Fleuve de Kemi.

[1801-1802] Plate mark 32 x 48 cm. The whole sheet 36 x 51,5 cm. Aquatint.

The printing slightly uncentered, meaning that there is a slight shadow just to the left of everything. A couple of very faint stains and a couple of minor creases to the margins. Nice condition.

The plate shows a section of the Kemi river in northern Finland, published for the work "Voyage pittoresque au Cap Nord", one of the earliest Swedish plate books in aquatint. It depicts a voyage across Scandinavia to the North Cape. The original was designed by Adolf Fredrik Skjöldebrand and the plate was engraved by Johan Fredrik Martin.
