A Collection of Swiss Costumes in Miniature.
London: Printed for James Goodwin. [1828].

8vo. (23.5 x 16cm). With half-title, title pages and list of illustrations in English and French. Bound in elaborately gilt full green morocco. Spine with gilt titles, gilt tooled raised bands and gilt decorated copartments. Burgundy and green morocco doublures and inner dentelles elaborately gilt with foliate and floral patterns. Burgundy moiré free endpapers. All edges gilt. Engraved book plate of Mary Macmillin Norton to upper doublure. 30 hand-coloured plates (although the index lists only 25) each with accompanying page of text.

Colas notes that this undated issue of the work is superior to the edition dated 1822 as a result of the superior paper quality and hand-colouring.
