Full Description

Folio. iv pp, 12 double-page tinted litho plates. Pub printed board portfolio, spine repaired.

Designs by a Stuttgart architect for the decorative treatment of walls, passages and entrance halls, all in a bold Germanic renaissance-cum-classical style with nationalist or triumphalist overtones (one design features a frieze of armorial shields celebrating the Prussian victories in the Franco-Prussian war). They include the interior which Steinhausen designed in 1874 for the Fest Saal of the Gesellen-Vereins-Haus in Stuttgart, and are characteristic of a now largely forgotten period of German architecture. This original edition not in NUC (the Avery Library has a reissue dated 1885).
