The map was part of Hermelins' atlas, which was the first comprehensive mapping of Sweden and Finland.
Samuel Gustav Hermelin launched his major cartographic undertaking as a private citizen. Unfortunately he suffered substantial economic loss. Due to economic difficulties the work, in its later stages, was continued by "Geographisk Inrättning", a private company before the government bought the plates, and the rights, to the work in the 1820s.
The atlas was published 1796-1818. The Finnish part of the atlas was produced a few years before Sweden lost Finland to Russia.
