This is a fascinating example of the 1852 Justus Perthes map of Switzerland. It covers all of Switzerland and parts of neighboring France, Germany, Austria and Italy. Map is highly detailed with both political and physical data. Various cities, mountains, roads, rivers and an assortment of additional topographical details are noted.Switzerland at this time was undergoing a rapid social and economic change known as the Regeneration Movement. Following the French July Revolution in 1830 the Swiss began assemble and call for fair representation and new cantonal constitutions. Many of the cantons subsequently established representative governments and instituted freedom of the press and trade.Political and regional borders are highlighted in outline color. Unlike other cartographic publishers of the period, the Justus Perthes firm did not transition to lithographic printing techniques. Instead, all of their maps are copper plate engravings and hence offer a level of character and depth of detail that was impossible to find in lithography or wain x-process engraving. All text is in German. Issued as plate no. 32 in the 1854 edition of Stieler's Hand-Atlas.
