Sketches of the Natural, Civil, and Political State of Swisserland
London - J. Dodsley 1780 - A scarce collection of letters on Eighteenth Century Switzerland, in attractive leather binding. Written by William Coxe and addressed to William Melmouth, the work makes for a fascinating and rare insight into Switzerland's state at that time of publication, from a unique British perspective. A curious work. Contains a bookplate to pastedown. Condition: In calf binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, there is wear to the boards, joints and backstrip, with worming to backstrip, with some loss of leather,and cracking to joints, as well as tenderness to hinges. Internally, the pages are firmly bound but are lightly spotted, age-toned and creased throughout, with an ink inscription to title page. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
