Scarce Military Broadsheet published to celebrate the New Year and designed as a reflection of Swiss prowess in the field of Fortification and Infantry Drill. Few of these Broadsheets have survived and this piece comes from a large private collection that we were lucky enough to be able to purchase in Switzerland.

Minor spotting to outer margins.
