Full Description

Small folio. 160pp, 120 woodcut ills. Publisher’s decorative cloth. Ownership inscriptions dated 1949 on half title leaf. Gavin Stamp’s copy.

Striking monograph on the picturesque Rathaus building at Lüneburg in North Germany, essentially of the late fifteenth century but with sixteenth century interior features. It is illustrated throughout by powerful woodcut illustrations of the 1920s, but is nonetheless entirely scholarly in intent.
