    Sorry for late respons Vetraio50! Thank you so muck for your help! I am so greatful! How do you know all these things?! Unfortunately this book has been used a lot by earlier generations so it´s not intact. It´s missing front and a few pages. But after your coment I have carefully looked threw it to see if I could find Erik Tunells name anywhere. I dont know the title of the book but I found a loose page that someone before me had used as a bookmark in the book, it look like it could say Tunell. And maybe something like "Geograf...utkast öfver Kon:Riket Sverige af Ericus Tunell". So maybe it´s what you refered to. I Think this is probably the firts page of the book. What do you think Vetraio? It looks like handwriting to me.

    What's great about this book is that´s it´s from 1748 and hold information about what was history already to them. For exampel when I read about my part of the country it say's that a meating was held here 1347 (!!!) by king Magnus Erikson. I can also read about little villages and what they lived off, who owned a specifik estate etc. I have goose bumps!

      Thanks Mikelv85, PhilipDavidAlexandermorris, aghcollect and Manikin!

      There you go! Great survivor.
    3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      These days on the net the title is written as Geographie öfwer Sweriges Rika.
      I've also seen it referred to as:
      Geographie öfver konungariket Swerige.
      This looks like what you have.

      It's also the title used by Amazon Books.
      So lots of hits for copies for sale.
      And there is this digital version:

      Erik Tuneld (or Eric Tuneld).

      I think this is the second edition in 1748. It was first published in 1742.

      Thanks ever so much! I think you're right. Even if it's long ago I feel that the language is more "oldfashioned" in my book than the one I can read digitaly. The letters looks different in style to. I will read up on this more, I have found info of where he was born, I'll be interesting to see how he discribes his own area.

      Yes old books contain several pieces of history, sometimes there are annotaitions or other pages of that previous owners had put inside to hide or to protect, on the other hand books of geography seems to preserve a less partidarian history. My compliments.
    12. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 6 years ago
      That's a new word for me, 'partidarian'. Think I can guess what it means. Thank you for showing an interest!
