Collection des Costumes de la Suisse et de Ses Pays Limitrophes
1 Collection des Costumes de la Suisse et de Ses Pays Limitrophes
Zurich Keller et Fussli Loose leaf Folio Good+ No Dust Jacket 
No date, though circa 1830. A charming complete collection of 24 hand colored lithographs, each measuring approx. 3 1/2 x 4 inches, and depicting the traditional costume and dress of various regions and occupations within Switzerland. All sheets, along with a colored decorative title sheet are laid into their original paper folder which then slides into a stiff paper slip-sleeve. The images are generally very good or better in condition, though there are a couple with small spots and foxing. The title sheet remains bright and clear, though is darkened and smudged around the edges, and has a small inked number at the bottom edge and at the top of the verso. The teal folder that holds them is intact, though a bit soiled, and the salmon colored sleeve is very worn.
