"The plates are unsigned and not numbered. Some plates also exist with French captions, probably prepared for a French edition which never was published. Thus, the French-captioned plates were rather arbitrarily bound in the 'Malerische' Donaureise [...] Apart from the title page, the first and second editions are entirely identical" (cf. Nebehay/W. I, p. 28-30).

Some foxing throughout, as common. One plate (Sigmaringen) has slight, remargined tear (not touching image).


Nebehay/Wagner I, 25.
