Full Description

8vo. 119 + (37)pp, incl 42 photo ills, also 2 colour plates. Later cloth (a binding of the 1960s ?). A preliminary blank leaf slightly soiled, otherwise in good internal condition.

Good monograph commemorating the Czech architect, painter and stage set designer Bedrich Feuerstein (1892-1936), a pupil of Joseph Plecnik who subsequently worked with Auguste Perret in Paris and Antonin Raymond in Japan (where he designed modernist buildings both in Tokyo and Yokohama). The volume contains appreciations of him by friends and colleagues, articles by him and extracts from his letters, as well as illustrations of projects, executed buildings and stage set designs. Our last copy of this title, sold by us for £385 in 2011, was a presentation copy from Feuerstein’s widow in its original binding, and our present copy, in a later binding, is priced appropriately.
