Birds in Axel W. Eriksson collection collected in South-Western Africa during 1867-1887. The birds are mainly collected by Axel W. Eriksson himself, but there are a few speciments collected by Charles John Andersson. The area include todays Namibia, Angola, South Africa and Botswana. The collection contains around 1000 birds. During the time of the collecting, Axel W Eriksson labeled each bird with its Latin name, the color of the bird's eyes, sex, location and date of collection. The extensive bird collection, of great importance for the founding and the establishment of Vänersborg museum, was donated to the city of Vänersborg in 1883 by Axel Eriksson. It was mounted by the renowned taxudernust Gustav Kolthoff (1845-1913).
