DAHLBERG, ERIK. Suecia antiqua et hodierna. I-III + Index. C. 1660-1718. Oblong folio. With 13-page index at the end. 354 engraved plates (excluding the extra plate Templum Ulricae Eleonorae, small plates mounted on somewhat later paper or joined together, almost all others on whole paper, a few marginal tears, some creasing, minor foxing, a few yellowed). Contemporary brown mottled full calf, worn, cracks in the joints, richly gilt slightly faded spine in six compartments, mended at head and foot. In a worn later (20th century) half leather case. During his military service and studies in Germany, Erik Dahlberg (1625­1703) became acquainted with Matthaeus Merian the younger, the publisher of "Theatrum Europaeum" and the "Topographies". On his return to Sweden in 1661, Dahlberg obtained a privilege from the Government to make drawings for a similar publication. The engravings for this work were executed from these drawings by a total of 18 artists except for a few, which were based on drawings by David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl and Elias Brenner The project began in 1667, when a number of plates were engraved by Nicolas and Adam Perelle Jean Marot Jean Le Pautre and F. Campion in Paris. Dionysius Padt Brugge engraved 9 plates in Stockholm 1686-87. In 1687 Dahlberg approached another Dutch engraver, Willem Swidde who produced 84 plates together with Erik Reitz and Martin Mytens After Padt Brugge's death, in 1696, he was succeeded by Johannes Van den Aveelen, who came to Stockholm in 1698. He made no less than 144 engravings. Samuel von Blesendorf in Berlin was employed for the portraits, among other things.Collijn, Sveriges Bibliografi, 1600-talet, col. 197. Berlin Cat. 1, 2256.
