Mainz, J. Halenza, [1880]. Two parts in two. 8vo (text: 26.4 x 16.2 cm). Title page, 24 pp. (in English). Panorama: One folding lithographed view by F. Foltz (27 x 230 cm). Contained in original printed boards with the German title on one board, and the French/English titles on the other. A fine, detailed panorama (bird's eye view) of the river Rhine, complete with the rare descriptive English text, describing in detail all the towns, landmarks and great views along the river. Even the history of the towns and the local hotels are mentioned. Numerous monuments, including statues, castles, churches, and bridges, are illustrated separately. A portrait of the engraver, Friedrich Foltz, is included. Little is known about Friedrich Arnold, the author of the text. Board edges slightly stained, spine reinforced. The panorama and the text both in pristine condition. Very rare in this state. The text seems to be quite scarce and is most often lacking. A fine Rhine panorama with the rare English text
