The national costumes of central Switzerland, with 12 colored plates and 165 b / w illustrations. A pattern for a costume? Apx 39" by 35" it fell apart as I opened it so the section you see next to it I didn't open; has tears at the folds, but over-all looks usable!

"My job here is to clarify the origins of the Swiss costumes, their development, their gradual education and their kinship, to show the constant influence of the everyday fashion and to define the changes with the most accurate time possible" (Foreword).
Hard cover - please read below - I only had 12 pictures to give you the good, the bad, & the ugly. Fair to maybe good condition only.Boards & pages secure [although the texblock is not as strong as it should be] and the front cover is slack, no splits to the outer joints, inner hinges cracked, wear & spots to the covers -the bottom of the spine is chipped, back cover looks as good [or bad] as the front, pages generally clean with some spots & a stain throughout the book, staining at the top gutter area throughout. The b/w photo of the lady wearing a "head-dress" was about the darkest stain -picture #9. Stained all through the gutter and top of the b/w photos -these stains are slightly darker than the appear in my photos- a few small rips / pages with a light fold /. Otherwise I can't send you a new invoice. If you have trouble, contact me.
