PFYFFER VON WYHER, Ludwig.
Panorama oder Zirkel-Aussicht vom Rigi Berg. Guide des voyageurs sur le mont Righi.
Fine panorama of the 360 degree view from the Rigi Mountain in Switzerland. The panorama map also has 4 individual views engraved in the corners: view of the mountain from the valley; view of the cottage at the highest point, view from a higher mountain down to the Rigi mountain; and larger scale map. This is a fine survival from the time mountaineering was in its infancy. Twenty years later Turner climbed the mountain and painted his series of fine watercolours (Blue Rigi, Dark Rigi and Red Rigi; which were sold some years ago breaking auction records). Mark Twain visited in 1878 and wrote extensively about the Rigi Mountain.
