About this Item

Small Folio. 370pp., xvii. Original blue quarter leather over blue-gray cloth with gilt-stamped illustration and lettering on cover. Plum endpapers. Frontispiece portrait. First and only edition of this rare documentation of the "Internationale Baufach-Ausstellung" in Leipzig, 1913, featuring among many other exhibitions, the Leipzig Central Railway Station and the Monument for the Peoples Battle (Völkerschlachtdenkmal). Due to the outbreak of W.W.I the effect of this major exhibition was limited. The documentation includes the work of all committees, description and images of buildings exhibited, including all Special Exhibitions, and the financial background of the exhibition and its various projects. The report is comprised of more than 50 reports on architecture as art and science, workers protection, construction industry and the crafts involved in architecture, financial management as well as the art exhibitions at the fair, including the caricature and photography exhibitions. Many of the exhibitors were members of the Deutsche Werkbund, an association of architects, architects, designers and industrialists that was seminal in the development of modern architecture and industrial design, e.g. Bruno Taut, Bernd Stadler, Max Heidrich. Includes an illustrated contribution on the Deutsche Werkbund and Raumkunst (interior design). One of the extraordinary, award-winning special exhibitions features the "Das Monument des Eisens (Monument of Iron)" designed by the architects Bruno Taut and Josef Hoffmann for the company Breest & Co. The report is profusely illustrated with extraordinary in-text and full page offset reproductions of sepia-toned photographs, drawings and floor plans.
