Title : Nouvelle carte de la Suisse. Divisée en ses treize cantons. . . [4 sheets].
Map maker : SCHREUCHER, J.J. / COVENS, J. / MORTIER, C..
Date : Amsterdam, 1720.
Size : 38.8 x 45.8 inches. / 98.5 x 116.3 cm.
Colouring : Original body colours.

Description :Prepared by Johann Jakob Scheuchzer (1672-1733), physician and geographer of Zürich. In 1712 he published a map of Switzerland in four sheets (scale 1/290,000), of which the east portion (based on his personal observations) is far the most accurate, though the map as a whole was the best map of Switzerland till the end of the 18th century.
Elaborate title cartouche with allegorical figures representing Swiss rivers, elaborate illustrated surround with key, each canton with its hand-colored coat of arms.
The map was used by Dutch and German publishers, only the cartouche slightly divers. All through not completely recalled as a "carte à figures" map, it surely is one of the most specular maps of Switzerland .

Condition : Printed on four separate sheets, if joined measuring 985x1163mm. In very good condition. A dark impression with fine contemp. body colours, with uncoloured cartouches, as issued.


ID: 01476
