    I found this old print today of a very historical town in Switzerland and it opened up a whole world of information about Medieval Europe. I've spent the whole evening reading about it. i even found a digital copy online here: <a title="Matthäus Merian
    [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons" href="https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Merian_Sitten.jpg"><img width="512" alt="Merian Sitten" src="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bf/Merian_Sitten.jpg/512px-Merian_Sitten.jpg"></a>

    If you look closely, you can see that mine is made up of two seperate pages glued together right down the middle. I found the same on the online image, so i believe mine is an actual 1640 or 1642 print. it was in a really nasty frame, but i found a decent 19th c oak frame i'm going to put it in tomorrow.

      From Wikipedia: Sion in 1640, from Topographia Helvetiae, Rhaetiae et Valesiae, 1642.
