Cronstedt Collection

Eight thousand drawings collected by eighteenth century architect Carl Cronstedt were acquired by the Nationalmuseum in 1941.

Tessin-Hårleman Collection

At the end of the seventeenth century Nicodemus Tessin The Younger, Superintendent of Buildings for the Swedish court, had Daniel Cronström, a Swedish diplomat in Paris, send theatre drawings and stage models to Stockholm. These drawings supplemented drawings sent by Tessin's son Carl Gustaf, Ambassador to Paris 1739-43 and others form the Tessin-Hårleman Collection which contains thousands of drawings.

A number of the drawings are loose rather than bound in a volume.

Volume K1 includes a group of drawings illustrating the mechanical details of costumes which present performers as animals and inanimate objects.

Volume S4. A microfilm copy of the manuscript is available at The Ohio State University's Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute [McDowell Archive Film 1649.]

Volume S5. A microfilm copy of the manuscript is available at The Ohio State University's Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute [McDowell Archive Film 2086.]

Volume S7 contains many drawings of machinery. A microfilm copy of the manuscript is available at The Ohio State University's Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute [McDowell Archive Film 2425.]
