Denkmäler des Theaters: Inszenierung, Dekoration, Kostüm des Theaters und der grossen Feste aller Zeiten : nach Originalen der Theatersammlung der Nationalbibliothek, der Albertina und verwandter Sammlungen. Herausgegeben von der Direktion der Nationalbibliothek mit Unterstützung der Gesellschaft zur Herausgabe der Denkmäler des Theaters. Twelve volumes. With 355 plates (some in colour and heightened with gold and silver). Each volume contains descriptive text in German (texts for Mappe V & XI in xerox). Atlas folios (sizes vary from ca. 600 x 380 mm to 330 x 450 mm), loose as issued in original cloth portfolios. Vienna: Nationalbibliothek, [1926-30].

This ambitious work documents the monuments of the theater, scenic design, decorations and costumes for the theater and the great festivals, from the Medieval period to the Baroque; there are fine plates depicting architectural fantasies, early Flemish and Netherlandish theater, the garden and the stage, "grotesque comedy," the Medieval theater and its influence upon manuscripts, images of Death, the festivals of Louis XIV, and the last great theatrical period of Vienna.
