An very rare atlas. The maps have dates ranging from 1816 to 1848. Åkerland died in 1835 which means that some of the maps were updated after his death by others. The title leaf lists 18 maps under the heading "Innehåll" (Contents) and 5 maps under the heading "Supplement" (Supplement).
Because of continues updating, the maps sometimes have more than one date.
