About this Item

254 pgs. including an index. RARE TITLE, ESPECIALLY IN 1ST EDITION IN THIS CONDITION! Green HC book has bright gilt font on fc and spine, and a blind stamped Swiss Cross in gilt on the fc. VERY GOOD shape. With barely bumped corners & spine ends, both cover boards show some mild shelf rubbing and wear. No foxing, unmarked, extra tight, clean, square, no missing or damaged pages, no repairs of any kind, no musty odors. No DJ. Fascinating combination of a 19th. Century Travelogue through Switzerland, and advice for the potential traveler. Detailed descriptions of a world long since passed into memory, before both world wars, depression, hyper-inflation, communisim, fascism, revolutions, and the like ravaged Europe. Almost like reading the "Heidi" story! Also contains 30 knockout b&w photos of things like cathedrals, people, animals, nature (including a nice shot of the Matterhorn), landscapes, city views, etc. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
