Frith's Photo-Pictures. Switzerland [cover title]. Two variant versions are offered together
[No publication details given, but we suggest Frith, Reigate, 1860s].
92 x 125 mm, two volumes, with each volume containing  leaves with - mounted on the recto of each one - an original albumen paper photograph (a carte-de-visite, approximately 60 x 95 mm or the reverse) within a thin grey printed border, captioned in pencil in the bottom left-hand corner below the border.
Flush-cut cloth boards lettered in gilt on the front cover, with blind-stamped ruled borders on both covers; light marks to one rear cover; in excellent condition, with the decorative nameplate of Walter E. Whitehead on each front pastedown.
There is no duplication of images in these volumes. Gernsheim (Incunabula of British Photographic Literature, 1839-1875), records books published between 1864 and 1867 under the same generic title, containing half- and full-plate photographs, but he makes no mention of this format.
