Description

Rare early map of Switzerland.

The map extends from Basel in the north to the Italian Lake District in the south.

A search of various references suggests that map is most likely by Tassin. See Fascikel IIa., Landesvermesung und Karten der Scweiz, ihrer Landstriche unde Kantone. Herausgegeben vom Eidgenossischen topographischen Bureau . . . Bern, 1892 (p. 30 and p. 43). See also Broer Map collection. Ryh 3202 : 16 (illustrated, dating map at 1668).

We have found references to this map suggesting it might also be attributable to Berey or Langlois, although Tassin seems the most probable.
