Back in the 1950’s this map case was the front counter for E. Burstein Old Maps Books Views Geneva (Switzerland) 7. Rue De L’Hotel De-Ville. When he died his son, Marcel, inherited the store. After a dispute with the municipal government, he packed up the fixtures and the inventory and moved to the United States. Several years later we became acquainted with Marcel. Over a period of time, we purchased some of the leftover stock from Burstein’s and some of the fixtures, including this map case. This map case was a prominent feature of our retail store and now resides in our private library.
