Full Description

8vo. xii + 232pp, 87 woodcut text ills. Contemporary boards, spine chipped. Browned internally. The E.P.Goldschmidt Ltd reference copy.

An unpretentious but handy guide book to buildings, works of art, artists and craftsmen in Nürnberg. On individual topics it has long since been superseded, but it covers a good deal of ground, and chapters such as those on the city’s mediaeval churches and on the art and architecture of the writer’s own time (1815-53) are by no means useless.
