About this Item

Book. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. xii, 524 pp. With 388 woodcut illustrations in text and five copper engravings (all present, although the latter are clustered in back and not by pages as indicated in index). Similar to the English language "Art Journals", this is the best source for a contemporaneous review and critique of the decorative arts on display at the Vienna Exposition of 1873. This was the zenith of the ornate eclecticism and turgid revivals that characterized the mid-Victorian era, associated with Louis Napoleon in France, yet also just at the point there was going to be a reaction to all this. Striking also was the seriousness devoted to the decorative arts. In this volume, perhaps in contrast to the Art Journals, some influential tastemakers such as von Falke weighed in with their thoughts. For anyone interested in the sophisticated elaborate antiques of the period, this book is a trove of information, even if the German can not be read. Binding has considerable rubbing and/or wear, including red morocco spine. Gilt lettering and decoration thereon still reasonably bright. Green marbled endpapers. Binding is tight. Pages are clean if age toned. Good plus. Bookseller Inventory # 001144

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.
