A delightfully whimsical 1846 map of Scandinavia, from a German kinderatlas or children's atlas. The map details Sweden and Norway divided with color coding. The whole is surrounded by a wide border featuring charming vignettes meant to illustrate the peoples and cultures of the region. These include men in a boat fighting sea creatures, a man in a canoe following a walrus, a man chiseling rock, a man riding a sledge being pulled by a reindeer, etc. The map is accompanied by its adjacent page, which includes a poetic history of the Kingdom of Sweden and Norway in German gothic type. The wonderful and rare map was drawn by Anst. V A. Boeden of Berlin for inclusion as plate no. in xI in the 1846 issue of Julius Loewenberg's Geographische Landerfibel.
