First edition of a scarce series of fine and curious Swedish caricatures, printed in lithography by Ludwig Fehr, a native of Germany, who, together with Carl Müller, had introduced the process to Sweden by setting up the first lithographic press at Stockholm in 1817/18. In 1820 Fehr left for southern Sweden and settled for a while in Gothenburg where he established another lithographic press. Later he moved again to set up the first lithographic press in Kristiana in Norway; in 1823 his son Ludwig the younger joined the business.
