Map of Italy and Switzerland by T. Ettling.
Zincograph with hand colour, folded as issued. 680 x 480mm, 26¾ x 19". Repaired tears, some spotting.
A map published as a supplement to the Illustrated London News, as the Kingdom of Sardinia formally annexed the former Austrian-controlled regions of Parma, Modena, Tuscany and the 'Papal Legations' of Ferrara, Bologna, and Romagna. This was done with the support of Britain and France, which took Savoy & Nice as a reward (much to the disgust of the Italian national hero Garibaldi, a native of Nice). This was an important event in Italian Unification.
