Righi, in original cloth folder with printed title in ornamental frame, mounted. Spine, corners and ties restored or renewed). Inside first cover printed publisher's catalogue 'for the use of travellers'. ¶ Beautiful large panoramic view taken from Mont Righi in the orig. handcoloured edition + the extra booklet of 32 p. with descriptive notices. So complete hardly ever found on the market. No mention in the Swiss Panorama Bibliography. The SAC catalogue with a small notice on p. 244 of a lithographic panorama by Keller around 1850, this has nothing to do with the present copy. Which is engraved (and not lithographed) and must be dated around the same date as the mentioned 'Rundpanorama by Pfyffer' ca. 1820. Also the catalogue of publications by Leigh and Son on the inside cover lists Ebel's Atlas through Switzerland, which was published in 1818, -19 & -20. This panorama particulary fine in its orig. cover and with the orig. booklet. Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. SLB Fasc.
