Detailed Product Description
London Smith, Elder & Co, 1874, 1st edition. 367 pp, map in rear pocket. Original blue cloth bound hardcover with gilt central image of a walker in front of the Matterhorn lifting his alpenstock with his hat on top. Spine with gilt title and edelweiss. Former owner's bookplate on front pastedown, edge wear and wrinkled cover cloth. Very Good condition.

Zincke's series of books based on his travels in Switzerland include: A Month in Switzerland, London, 1873, The Swiss Allmends: Being a Second Month in Switzerland, London, 1874, and A Walk in the Grisons: Being a Third Month in Switzerland, London, 1875. In "Allmends," he covers the "commonable" land of Switzerland. He notes that instead of a sketch map of the study area, he includes a "...really good map of the whole country."

F. B Zincke (1817-18930) became the Vicar of Wherstead in 1847, and was Chaplain to the Queen. Additionally, Zincke was a lover of travel. Immediately after leaving Oxford he visited France, and traversed a large part of Switzerland on foot. In September 1853 he went to Ireland, and convinced himself that the distressed state of the country was largely owing to past misrule. He spent the greater part of 1867 and 1868 in the United States of America, travelled eight thousand miles, and recorded his impressions and observations in Last Winter in the United States, being Table Talk collected during a Tour through the late Southern Confederation (London, 1868, 8vo). In 1871 he visited Egypt, and published The Egypt of the Pharaohs and of the Khedive (London, 8vo), which reached a second edition in 1873.
