Detailed Product Description
Bologna, 1970, reprint of 1723 edition. Two Volumes, leather bound, in a handsome slipcase, utterly New condition. Number 14 of an edition of 300. In Latin. 100s of famous illustrations of the Alps, especially the dragons that were known to live there. Reproductions of copper plates, and 108 fold-out, 16 folded copperplates illustrations. From the Second (1st complete) Latin edition. This set was produced in 1970 in Italy. Both volumes are bound in blue half leather, with gold spine lettering, and marbled boards. The original slipcase also has a matching leather top and bottom, with matching marbled boards sides. We obtained this books from a Seattle collector in the 1980s, who bought it new in the 1970s. It has only been on two shelves in its life. Utterly new condition.



Considered the first scientific examination and description of the Alps. Scheuchzer was the village doctor of Zurich in the 1700s, a naturalist and a scholar. He wrote several books of history and science. The language of scholars was Latin, which is why this book was produced in Latin. First editions of this book are now listed on the internet for $20,000. The last time we sold a copy, it was merely $9000.

This book is heavy so extra postage will be requested for Media, Priority Mail or International Mail.

With regard to its natural history and topographical results, an extraordinarily important travelogue by the well-known Swiss naturalist, who was the founder of the physical geography of the high mountains and was the first to make barometric altitude measurements in the mountains. With beautiful maps and plans of the cantons, mountain valleys and rivers including the Rhine and the Rhone. But above all, magnificent, mostly large and multi-folded city views, partly from the bird's eye view. Among them: Aarau, Altdorf, Baden, Berne, Biel, Brugg, Chur, Friborg, Glarus, Herisau, Lausanne, Lucerne, Mellingen, Murten, Pfeffers (2), Plurs, Rapperswyl, St. Gallen, Schwyz, Sion, Solothurn, Thun , Wiflisburg, Zug and Zurich (2) and many more.
