8vo. 20 by 14 cm. , 68 pp. With 24 hand-colored plates, mostly views of Meklenburg's cities and their buildings, squares, monuments, parks, surroundings, but also a few costume plates. This would appear to be the first volume of four in a series, although this volume works as a standalone work, as there is no indication of volume number. Copies of this work were also issued without color. The coloring here greatly enhances the illustrations, especially because it is so finely done. The plates are of modest size yet very detailed, and so the coloring was executed with great precision. The book has scattered foxing, more frequent on the text pages but also affecting the plate margins at times. Soiling on the cover.
