Graimberg, Charles de. Ansichten von Heidelberg und Schwetzingen (spine title).

[Probably Heidelberg, 1811-1824].

Oblong 12mo (138 x 98 mm). 48 hand-coloured lithographed views by Graimberg, captions in French & German. Paper guards. Contemporary grey moirée boards with traces of a stamped spine label.


Charming and early lithographed series of Graimberg's views showing Heidelberg and its environs (the castle, Wolfsbrunnen, the giant stone on the Gaisberg, the four castles of Neckarsteinach) as well as of Schwetzingen Palace and its famous gardens (prints 34-48), all in very pretty, strictly contemporary hand colour. The present views are mostly undated, but others bear dates of drawing between 1811 and 1824.

Occasional light browning; binding a little rubbed and stained; professionally restored. Extremely rarely encountered complete and in original colour.


Bobins 1688.
