Suecia Antiqua et Hodierna, or Ancient and Modern Sweden, is the title of a large work of engravings collected by Erik Dahlbergh in the mid-17th century. The Suecia can be described as a grand vision of Sweden during its period as a great power. Dahlberg's direct source of inspiration was the topographical publications issued by the Swiss publisher Matthäus Merian. In 1661 Dahlberg was granted a royal privilege enabling him to realize his plans, which kept him occupied for a good decade, and a work that would not be printed until after his death. In its final state Suecia Antiqua et Hodierna comprised three volumes containing 353 plates.
Yeah, Helge Zettervall wasn't very sensitive in his church restorations. No one appreciated brick gothic at the turn of the 19th century. At least the original towers are still there under the outside brick skin in Uppsala. Zettervall actually completely tore down the towers of Lund Cathedral. The Norman towers there today are complete new builds.Great work!! I've always thought hat Uppsala cathedral looked better before it got it's neo-gothic make over. The towers look just like any neo-gothic church built between 1850 - 1900
