Costumes Suisses.

Lucerne: Freres Eglin, (c. 1850s). 22-panel panorama of hand-colored lithographs. The tiny illustrations show men and women from the different Swiss cantons in their native dress. The images are meticulously colored, with the small costume and background details showing careful attention. In the original marbled boards and housed in the original paper sleeve with hand-colored, lithographed label showing a Swiss chalet. This costume book is not recorded in any of the the major costume references. Gumuchian lists a similar item with only twenty costumes; he does not note the publisher, however, which is clearly printed on the sleeve of this copy. With ownership inscription dated Lucerne, 1853. (See Gumuchian 4069 and Welsh 2045). (2 3/4 by 2 1/8; 70x53mm). Item #9005
