First Edition. Original Wrappers.

Concertina-type booklet (leporello) with 22 hand-coloured lithographs, depicting groups of people in their environment in the clothing of their cantons.

The lithographs are mounted on accordion-folded cardboard in a cover, inserted into a case with lithographed title vignette. Each vignette measures 9.5 x 5.5 cm. The whole (opened) is 9.5 x 123 cm
The case is scuffed and shows age wear. Loss of paper at top and bottom of the left-hand edge. The cover has paper loss at head and tail of spine. The leporello has a tiny hole in the top margin of the first print, not affecting the artwork. The last print has some paper loss at the top (not affecting the artwork).
