This print is from the classic work by Zurlaubens on Switzerland, with picturesque views. This engraving shows a typical farm house in the Berne district. Zurlaubens (1720 – 1799) published  the first voloume anonymously which gave all the credit to Laborde it wasn’t until a later publication that his name was added to the credits.
