Primum Pactum Confoederationis Helveticae MCCXCI.

(Montagnola: Officina Bodoni, 1925). Small folio. 28pp. One of 275 copies printed on Fabriano handmade paper. This edition prints the original Latin text of the pact on which the Swiss Confederation is based, as well as translations of the pact into languages recognized in Switzerland: German, French, Italian, Latin, and Romansh. Mardersteig, in the bibliography of the Officina Bodoni, observes that this book "is a striking example of how the same type-face changes in appearance when printed into different languages." A fine copy in quarter vellum and gilt-stamped Ingres paper-covered boards, which show just a hint of soiling and wear to corners, and with plain dust wrapper that has a few tears. (Mardersteig 13). Item #16448
