This is an attractive example of the 1828 Malte-Brun map of Sweden and Norway. The map covers from the Arctic Sea south to Denmark and east as far as the Gulf of Finland. The legendary and semi-mythical whirlpool known as the Maelstrom (Mahl Strom) in northwestern Norway is noted. This legendary whirlpool was the inspiration for edgar Allen Poe's classic tale 'Descent into the Maelstrom.' In reality, it is a periodic and powerful current caused by tidal variations in the region. At this time in history, Scandinavia was in the midst of a prolonged period of peace and prosperity that led to a cultural and population boom. Various, important rivers, islands, cities and other topographical details are noted. This map was published by Samuel Walker in 1828 as part of the American edition of Conrad Malte-Brun's System of Geography, Vol. I.
