MATTERHORN

In 1892 the Swiss Alpine Club published "Evolena-Zermatt-Monte Rosa", a map containing remarkable shaded relief and cliff drawings. Rudolf Leuzinger produced the stone-engraved cliff drawings. The brothers Kümmerly, from Bern, made the rest of the map including the relief shading and final lithographic printing.
