Album du Service Des Transports Etapes -- Chemins – De Fer Postes -- Automobiles / Album of the Department of Transport -- Stages Railroads Automobiles 1916

Condition: Fine


4to. Pp. 69. Lavishly illustrated with lush b&w photo reproductions. Bound in is a diploma for a driver/agent: “Diplome Occupation Des Frontieres Suisse Schweizerische Grenzbesetzung 1914 – 1915 – 1916” which is signed and stamped in ink; evidently a certificate for border patrol service during WWI. Half cloth binding with paper-covered boards, which are stamped and feature a mounted color printed emblem. In sum, an elaborate memento of Swiss neutrality during WWI, emphasizing, rightfully so, Switzerland’s celebrated independence. The photos, especially well executed, depict border crossings – sometimes bucolic, sometimes mountainous – and the various vehicles used by agents to navigate those difficult roads. A particularly pleasing copy. STDD-DYM-DW
