About this Item

Book. 4to - over 9¾. N.d. Circa 1907. Ambitious German survey on all the decorative arts and interior design from leading experts on the subject from the early twentieth century. Some emphasis on the business aspect, or the trade of, these various media. Profusely illustrated with full page plates, a good many in color, most photographs, some chromolithography, and many text illustrations and photographs. A great part of this survey's achievement is its synthesis of these disparate forms of the decorative arts, and it brings to everything a scholarly discipline that was still novel at the time of publication. Both volumes are tight internally and clean, with age toning to the pages. Decorated full vellum has some soilage and wear. Vol 1 has some starting at lower front board and perhaps a little shake.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
