About This Item

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.

About Lloyd Zimmer, Books and Maps

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
