Stockholms utseende i aldre ach nyare tider.Tecknigar af F. Werner.
Stockholm: Stentryk af C. Muller, 1829. Oblong 4to (17? x 25? cm.), original printed gray wrappers, in marbled boards, gilt-decorated mottled calf spine and corners, giltlettered crimson morocco spine label, device giltstamped on front cover, marbled endpapers. Lithographic title-page with heraldic decoration and eight leaves, each bearing on recto a city view with caption in Swedish and French. Light foxing, but overall crisp and clean.[(?) First Edition. The artist of these small but fine views is identified on the front wrapper as "Fr. Werner" and on the title-page as "F. Werner"; it is pretty certain that Fredrik Emanuel Werner (1780-1832), the Swedish painter and lithographer of mythological and topographical scenes, is the guy. This work seems to be virtually unrecorded, at least outside of Scandinavia where the National Library of Sweden lists one copy identical in collation to this copy. The British Museum Catalogue does list an Utsiger of Stockholm utaf F. Werner of the same date, with color plates but no letterpress. The present lithographs include various views of the city, usually from the water.
