e-rara-ch: Printed maps from the 16th to the 19th century
Since August 2012 it is possible to enjoy looking at printed historical maps in e-rara.ch (external link). Independently of a geographic focus the Basel University Library presents topographical maps from before 1700. There are also maps as well as town and building plans from the Basel region from 1701–1900. More than 200 maps are already online. They are complemented by selected 19th-century Swiss maps and panoramas out of the ETH-Bibliothek holdings.
