La Suisse: Collection de Vues Pittoresques

£500.00

Product description

This is an 1863 (three volume) edition of "La Suisse". There are about 200 engraved boards, including a frontispiece with each volume. Most of the engravings are covered with a protective sheet of tissue. These copies are bound in red buckram boards. They have faux leather spines with raised bands and gold lettering. The end-papers are decorated with a marbled design, and the books' edges have a lightly mottled pattern. Condition: all volumes are in roughly the same condition. They all have some mild to moderate marking and shelf-wear on the covers and spine. Volumes 2 and 3 also have prominent tears on the bottom left-hand side of their front covers. Additionally, volume 1 has a previous owner's signature in pen on the ffep; it also has some notes in pencil on the title page. The edges of all three volumes have some mild shelf-wear. There is some mild staining, foxing, and marking throughout the interior pages of each volume. However, the interior pages are generally in good condition, and the bindings are all strong. These books have possibly been re-bound, but if they have, it has been done to a very high standard.
