When the original creator Ulric Thersner died in 1828 the aquatint technique was abandoned and lithography was adopted for the execution of the rest of the work. At that time both the provinces of Upland and Södermanland were under production, which explains why these two volumes have plates both in aquatint and lithography. The present book is a compilation of the aquatints from Östergötland, Uppland and Södermanland. It contains all the 36 plates to Östergötland, all the 20 aquatint plates to Upland and all the16 aquatint plates to Södermanland. Many of the plates are quite striking
