Full Description

4to. xii + 451 + (1)pp. Contemporary quarter calf, marbled boards. From the library of Jules Brunfaut.

Earlier editions of this book had dealt only with German house interiors of the renaissance period, so this third edition has a wider subject matter. It has never been a highly regarded book, but the pages on colour schemes are interesting and the rather dull-looking woodcut illustrations portray not just historical examples but also some interiors and furnishings by German designers of the mid 19th century.
