A lovely view of the canton of Schwyz in central Switzerland. Coat of arms in centre top within title. To the right of the view is the canton’s capital town of the same name and below that is Brunnen on the shores of Lake Lucerne, which stretches across the bottom half of the view. To the left, also on the shores of the lake, is the small town of Gerisaw. Within the lake is a compass as well as various sailing ships. The mountains in the background are labelled ‘der Hocken’ whilst a key along the bottom identifies landmarks picked out by numbers within the view.

Copper engraving. Uncoloured. In fine condition. Size: 325 200 mm. (13 8 inches)
