Benevolent societies with the intention to disseminate knowledge were a distinguishing feature of the Victorian age. SDUK was founded in 1827 by John, Earl Russell and Henry Brougham, later Lord Chancellor of England. The Society published books that were deemed to be of high educational worth but with an affordable price. These fine steel engravings have original hand colouring and are often embellished with vignettes and comparisons of the height of the principal buildings of the city. Map extent: from Bergen in the west to Onega Lake in the east; from the North Cape to Upsala.

Steel engraving. Original outline colour. Very good condition. Size: 40 x 33 cm. (15 x 13 inches)
