Description

The first English translation by Frederic Shoberl of "Voyage pittoresque de Geneve a Milan par le Simplon". This is one of the most celebrated books on Swiss scenery, with beautiful hand colored plates. The publication itself should be seen as a product of the building appreciation of Alpine and Swiss scenery, once scorned, that began in the 1700s, and in particular British fascination with it.

Lory's views along the celebrated route from Geneva to Milan, include images of Geneva, Sion, Brieg, Simplon, Algaby, Lake Maggiore, Gondo, Isola Bella, Crevola, Sesto, Lake Como, and Milan.

Apparently a reissue of the 1820 edition. Some of the plates are dated from 1823 to 1826

Imperial 8vo. 11 by 8 inches, 29 by 20 cm. [8], 136, [2], 8 pp. Plus 36 hand-colored aquatint plates, and tinted frontis map.
