Striking birdseye view of Milan, engraved in Augsburg by Haffner.

One of the best obainable 18th Century views of Milan.

The view includes a coat of arms and a key identifying 63 points of interest.

Tooley notes:

The iconographic model of this view is the engraving printed by Georg Baltazar Probst in 1730, after Bernard Werner's drawing. As usual, the view is not reliable on an architectonical point of view, for it refers to the classical nordic style, in which the multitude of domes, bell towers and high poles ends in hollow covers, typical of Mitteleuropean cities.
