About this Item

Oblong quarto. Unpaginated. Original decorative wrappers with gold lettering on front cover. Publisher's device on title-page. Decorative tailpiece. Title-page and text in dark green lettering. Splendid photo-illustrated survey of the Czech art of iron and metal work from the 16th to the 18th century. Use of iron was mainly utilitarian until the Middle Ages, it became widely used for decoration in the period between the 16th and 19th century. From the 16th century onwards, ironwork became highly ornate especially in the Baroque and Rococo periods. The Baroque style changed the character of the Czech countryside (churches and chapels in Czech countryside are mostly Baroque). Czech Baroque architecture is considered to be a unique part of the European cultural heritage thanks to its extensiveness and extraordinariness. In the first third of the 18th century the Czech lands (especially Bohemia) were one of the leading artistic centers of the Baroque style. Illustrated with 17 striking heliogravure plates, this volume showcases some of the best and most beautiful examples of decorative and sculptural Czech metal- and ironwork (locks, gates, fences, railings, etc.). Closed tear at lower part of spine. Text in Czech. Wrappers in overall very good to near fine, interior in near to fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 24712
