Katalog der Architektur- und Ornamentstichsammlung : Teil I: Baukunst England [no more pubished] (75. Veröffentlichung der Kunstbibliothek Berlin)

Berlin, Verlag Bruno Hessling, 1977
(30.5 cm), 183 (1) pp., with 43 text illustrations. Publisher’s cloth (no dust jacket issued). - The first instalment of a new catalogue of books and prints in the Kunstbibliothek, Berlin, intended to (eventually) replace the old “Berlin Katalog” (1936-1936, reprinted 1958, 1986). The section “Architecture England” was totally lost in 1939-1945 and was the first to be actively collected thereafter. “[Dr Fischer] has produced an exemplary curatorial catalogue of the 119 copies of English architectural and topographical books (including three single prints) in the Berlin Kunstbibliothek, ranging in date from Dugdale’s Monasticon Anglicum of 1661-82 to P.F. Robinson’s Designs for Gate Cottages of 1837… All the information provided by Dr Fischer is comprehensible, accurate and absolutely trustworthy, which are the prime requirements of any bibliography” (from a review by Eileen Harris, in The Book Collector, Winter 1984, pp.529-531). ¶ Very good, unmarked copy.
