The catalogue is supplemented with a reasoned exposition consisting of: a regional survey of Swedish ironwork; a comparison with ironwork from the rest of Europe; an iconographic chapter which examines the extent to which the position of the ironwork on a door has influenced the choice of motifs; an analysis of the legal aspects - particularly regarding right of asylum - of the ringhandle; an illustration of the importance of material and technique in the absolutely unique development of wrought-iron forms; a survey of the carpentry construction of ironed doors; and; finally ; a chapter on chronology. The reasoned passages are illustrated by 380 photos and drawings. The majority of Volume I is text; with quite a few photos and illustrations. Volume II contains many more photographs.
