PFYFFER VON WYHER, Ludwig.
Panorama oder Zirkel-Aussicht vom Rigi Berg. Guide des voyageurs sur le mont Righi.
Fine panorama of the 360 degree view from the Rigi Mountain in Switzerland. The panorama map also has 4 individual views engraved in the corners: view of the mountain from the valley; view of the cottage at the highest point, view from a higher mountain down to the Rigi mountain; and larger scale map. This is a fine survival from the time mountaineering was in its infancy. Twenty years later Turner climbed the mountain and painted his series of fine watercolours (Blue Rigi, Dark Rigi and Red Rigi; which were sold some years ago breaking auction records). Mark Twain visited in 1878 and wrote extensively about the Rigi Mountain.
Catalogue des estampes des plus grands maitres, tableaux, bagues, livres, vases, idoles, &. qui composent la collection de Mr. Charles Michetti.
First edition. Description of the cabinet assembled by Charles Michetti in Vienna. Michetti stresses in his introduction that his collection was put together not for financial gain but because he liked the look of the pieces and appreciated their artistic merit. The bulk of the collection is made up of prints but there are also paintings, Etruscan vases, jewellery, a microscope from England, and a collection of books, particularly strong in the arts.
