This detailed map of Switzerland delineates the 22 cantons. It depicts towns, roads, and rivers with hachure marks to give a visual representation of the mountainous topography. A key at top right identifies various types of cities, roads, glaciers, mountains, and lakes. Published by the Vienna-based Artaria & Co.
There are a couple of minor spots in the map image and soiling that is almost entirely confined to the blank margins.
