Half morocco and marbled paper over boards, "T. M. P. / 1845" stamped in gilt on spine; 4to (8.75x11.5 inches). Contains the complete set of 23 hand-colored plates by F. Meyer, illustrating Swiss costume (from "Costumes Suisses en Mignature," Zurich, 1836); 33 hand-colored miniatures views of Switzerland (from "Cinquante Principales Vues Pittoresques en Mignature de la Suisse," Zurich, n.d.); 19 hand-colored miniature views of France and Germany. Plus a few watercolors, aquatints, engraved views fo Vienna, color lithographs of the Crimea, and more. Leaves a bit brittle, with a few detached and neatly laid in; but all images are neatly mounted in the album via slotted corners, and so easy to remove. A nice, bright collection overall, with some light marginal soiling, and just a plate or two a bit foxed or oxidized. Bookseller Inventory # D6747
