Excellent monograph on Berlage organised by his friends and colleagues to mark his sixtieth birthday. It provides illustrations of all his significant buildings and projects from the start of his architectural career onwards, lists of his executed works and writings, and eight introductory essays, of which those by Gratama (on his work generally), De Bazel (on his contribution to town planning), and Staal (on his work as a furniture designer) are particularly interesting.
