Description: Original antique steel-line engraved print of William Tell's Chapel, Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

The first recorded name of the lake is Lacus Lemannus, dated from Roman times; Lemannus comes from Ancient Greek Limanos, Liménos Limne, meaning port's lake. In the 18th century, Lac Léman was revived in French and is the customary name in that language. In contemporary English, the name Lake Geneva is predominant.

William Tell is a folk hero of Switzerland. His legend is recorded in a late 15th-century Swiss illustrated chronicle. It is set in the time of the original foundation of the Old Swiss Confederacy in the early 14th century.

The artist George Cattermole (10 August 1800 – 24 July 1868) was an English painter and illustrator, chiefly in watercolors. He was a friend of Charles Dickens and many other literary and artistic figures.
