This fully engraved map of Switzerland is divided into thirteen cantons. There is excellent detail of the lakes, mountains, and rivers in the region. A legend below the title cartouche identifies towns of various sizes, parishes, abbeys, baths, fields of battle, and "great vineyards." A note at right gives additional information on the cantons.
Full original color on watermarked paper with light offsetting and toning, primarily along the centerfold.
