Binding   Full Morocco

Book Condition   Very Good

Seller ID   004917

N.d., circa 1830. 32mo. 11 by 9.5 cm. 23 hand-colored plates, including title page, with its wreath of alpenrose. Costumes from the cantons and major cities plus the Black Forest. Each illustration features two or three men and women, usually performing some typical craft or activity associated with the area, or ready to do so. In other words, the portraits have some dynamism to them, and with their bright hand-coloring and diminutive scale, richly deserve the adjective of "exquisite". Scarce, with the only copies showing on OCLC First Search at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek of the Netherlands and the Zentralbibliothek of Zurich. Crack along rear joint, with possible partial repair done. Other rubbing along the edges. Plates generally clean. Original tissue guards intact. A neat inked inscription in English on the FFEP dated 1831 and sited to Lucerne.

Price = 675.00 USD
