GOTTFRIED, Johann Ludwig. Engraved by MERIAN, Matthew.
A spectacular view of the town of Glarus in east central Switzerland, entitled at the top with both its Italian name (Glarona) and its French name (Glaris). Impressively craggy mountains tower in the background with the very picturesque town laid out at their feet, a river running past in the foreground. In the centre top under the title is a coat of arms depicting a saint with a staff.
