(Switzerland- Mountain Heights inset- Cantons)
Issued 1834, Gotha Germany by Perthes for Ad. Stieler.
Box at top left lists a long column of different specific mountain heights. 22 Cantons named in box at top right.
Scarce and charming little mid-19th century antique map. Engraved with original outline hand color. Noteworthy for the early date and scarcity factor, from a small pocket sized school atlas which had a relatively small circulation and thus maps from it are only infrequently encountered today.
Sheet displays small minor signs of age, light evidence of some handling, but overall still clean and well preserved. A charming little antique map with fine patina and visual appeal.
Sheet measures c. 9 7/8" x 11 1/4".
Printed area measures c. 6 3/4" x 9 7/8".
