About this Item

Lovely vignette views from the Biedermeier era. N.d., circa 1830. All the cities are in Europe, with Constantinople being the partial exception, as it has an Asian side. The backgrounds of the vignettes are alternately blue, orange, pink and white, and each of the cities are numbered, 1 being Contantinople, and 84, in the dead center, being Dresden. We do not have instructions for the game nor a box or sleeve, but one can surmise that players moved pieces along in a race to the center, and one can further surmise that the game is of Saxon origin and probably from Dresden. For many of the cities, the representative view is the same today, while for just as many, it is something no longer possible to experience, whether because of war or growth. Many of the views have tiny human figures in the foreground, just like typical larger print panoramas. The game board is a square, each side being 39.5 cm, and folds twice for compact storage. The city square vignettes face in all four directions, but nonetheless, the open board would make for an appealing framed wall hanging. The light soiling does not undermine the visual charm of the board. Bookseller Inventory # 005156

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
