Interesting early 19th century antique engraved chart. Each mountain is listed in the large key at top right, all named with their heights and country location. Altitudes of Towns seen lower left.
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light or trivial age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the zoomable scan.
Sheet measures c. 14 1/2" W x 10 1/4" H.
Printed area measures c. 11 1/2" W x 8 3/4" H.
