Topographical Plates

Most of the plates have Swedish motifs, but there are many foreign ones as well. They span history from the 16th century to the present day.

The plate collection contains about 15 000 vistas. Many were taken from books and magazines, and include photographs, unique engravings, and watercolors. Some of the artists are Elias Martin, Erik Adolf Geete, Louis Jean Desprez, and Martin Rudolf Heland.
