Novel in two volumes by the Swiss writer Rodolphe Töpffer. In each of them - Journey to the Grande Chartreuse and around Mont Blanc and Journey through the Hérens valleys, from Zermatt to Grimsel, Genoa and the Corniche - he tells the story of children's peregrinations through the country. This is where the author's pedagogical aspect comes into play, as it allows the reader to discover new landscapes, the very ones that the protagonists observe in wonder.
In good condition.
