KELLER, Heinrich [illustrator] and J.J. SCHEURMANN [engraver]. Vue Prise Depuis l'Auberge au Weissenstein par Henry Keller. Zürich bey Füessli et Comp: zur Meisen, [c. 1822].
Concertina-folding aquatint and partially hand-coloured panorama (158 x 1920 mm) with 2 flaps extending from lower margin to reveal Solothurn, folding back into the original publisher's pink boards with lithographic title label and cardboard slip-case with engraved label incorporating small partly coloured map; this lightly spotted, otherwise in very good condition, or - 'as new'.
This is an exceptional panorama of the view from Mount Weissenstein. Heinrich Keller (1778-1862) was the leading Swiss draughtsmen of panoramas and maps. This panorama, drawn in 1817 in the inn on the mountain, was one of his last works to be published by Fuessli before he founded his own publishing company. The label on the boards reads already 'chez l'Auteur, whereas the one on the slipcase still mentions Füessli. The engraver Samuel Johann Jakob Scheurmann was, similarly to Keller, a specialist of topographical prints.
