Johannes Meyer the Younger (1655 – 1712) was a painter, engraver and publisher of Zürich, Switzerland. He was brought up in the trade by his father, Conrad Meyer (1618 - 1689) of the same city, who had been a student of Matthäus Merian. Conrad was successful and prolific, producing more than a thousand works, among them Conrad Gyger's 1657 map of Switzerland and his own 1681 Planisphaerium Coeleste . Both Johannes and his father had engraved many of the Neujahrsblättern - 'New Year's Papers - printed by the Burgerbibliothek Zürich as New Years' gifts to the children of Zürich.
