    More Information:

    [Abraham Ruchat]. État et délices de la Suisse. Ou description historique et géographique des treize cantons suisses et de leurs alliés. Nouvelle édition. Neuchatel: Samuel Fauche, 1778. New edition (and first quarto edition). Two quarto volumes. With half-titles, engraved frontispieces, and seventy nine engraved maps and plates (some folding). Contemporary full tree calf. Bindings quite worn, with spine lacking gilt and labels (there is evidence of their former presence), front board of volume I nearly detached, front joint of volume II cracking, ownership signature on title-page of volume I, some occasional pencil markings throughout. Some leaves toned with some mild dampstaining. Still, a good set with excellent illustrations. One of the best (and most attractive) histories of Switzerland, this edition preferred over others due to the illustrations.

    Barbier II, 298. Longchamp 2560.
