pretty cool. That book has been on my to buy list for some time. Found a copy in a Bern bookstore, going to try to pick it up this summer while on that side of the planet. Hope it's in English...

Till then, keep it coming.

Hope it's in English...

Buy it even if it is not, for the color plates and illustrations, and use the english digital version as your translation.

Given the rarity and importance of the book, I'd say buy it, no matter which language it's in.

Do you have this posted somewhere else? Your link is no longer working and I would love a copy of this. I have been contemplating doing an inter-library loan request and scanning the thing...........

On a slightly related note to my ealier post, did not find the book I was looking for but had a wonderful time at the Swiss Alpine Museum in Bern. Loads of physical models, a couple from Imhof, among others. All were outstanding. Did pick up a german copy of his book on physical modeling techniques, but can't read it, of course. Looks like if I could get two or three pages of his methods pages translated it would be a great start.

Will share when that happens.

Imhof English Version only one Unfortunatly I can not afford this or I would be grabbing it up in a heartbeat but maybe this may help one of my fellow Cartotalk members. Let me know how it works out.

Is this the average price for this treasure?
