Antique map of the Northern Provinces of Sweden & Norway with Part of Russia, c1844. Very detailed original antique map engraved on steel by J. & C. Walker. Published by Chapman & Hall under the Superintendence of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK).

John Walker, Alexander Walker and Charles Walker were collectively known as J. & C. Walker. Engravers, draughtsmen and publishers, they flourished in London from 1820-1895. During this time they worked out of 47 Bernard St, Russell Square (1830-1836), 3 Burleigh St, Strand (1837-1840), 9 Castle St, Holborn (1841-1847), and 37 Castle St, Holborn (1848-1875).

J & C Walker published their Royal Atlas with several reissues, and engraved many maps and charts for the British Admiralty; but are probably best known for their work in conjunction with the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK).

SDUK worked from 1829-1832 with Baldwin and Cradock of 47 Paternoster Row (later Baldwin, Cradock and Joy); in 1844 with Chapman and Hall; Chas Knight & Co from 1844-1852 (first at 22 Ludgate St, and then at 90 Fleet Street); G. Cox 1852-1853; and Stanford 1852-1870.
