This large map gives excellent detail of the lakes, rivers, and topography of Switzerland. Villages, cities, castles, abbeys, and baths are identified as well. A list of the Cantons along with their coats of arms appears in the title cartouche at top. Notes at left and right describe the regions and mountains in Switzerland, as well as the Rhine River. The map is dedicated to Claude Theophile de Beziade. Revised and published by Buache.
A nice impression with a few small stains at top, mildew stains at bottom, and a 1" centerfold separation that has been archivally repaired.
