Striking Map of Sweden & Norway
Scarce map of Sweden & Norway, published by Henry Teesdale of London.
In addition to the many towns, rivers, islands, lakes and other hydgraphical details which one would expect on this map, the map also notes the major roads in the two countries.
Teesdale was a London-based map publisher. He was an early Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, elected in 1830. Teesdale partnered with John Hordan and William Colling Hodson, but this arrangement dissolved in 1832. Afterward, he continued to work on his own and periodically with colleagues like John Crane Dower, Christopher Greenwood, Josiah Henshall and others. He published a variety of atlases and separately-issued maps. His business was quite successful, as he registered as a partner in the Royal Bank of Scotland in 1845.
