TETTINEK, Johann Ernest

Die Armen-Versorgungs-und Heilanstalten im Herzogthume Salzburg.

Salzburg: In Commission der Mayr'schen Buchhandlung. 1850.

First edition. 8vo. 220x140mm. pp. viii, 191, five folding tables. Text in German and Latin. Uncut in original pale brown paper paper wrappers, rebacked, title reprinted within wide decorative border on upper cover, imprint within same border on lower cover. Wrappers rather soiled and chipped, tears to upper cover at the joints, light browning and spotting. But overall a good copy considering that it is a fragile publication.
Rare first edition of this historical survey of Salzburg charitable institutions and hospitals. Tettinek is described in the title as "Bürger un Magistrats-Secretär in Salzburg". Worldcat locates only three copies, at BNUS in Strasbourg, and at Harvard and Stanford.
