ansB16862

Berlin, Wasmuth, 1904-05. 31x22. XVI+220; + VIII+238; + VIII+240 pp. + 26 pp. index. 762 photos, drawings and plans. A very good set uniformly bound in contemporary cloth. The scarce first edition.

The first real history, in any language, of English domestic architecture in the latter half of the 19th century. Muthesius was stationed as an architect at the German embassy in London from 1896 to 1903 to study English housing and architecture. He returned full of enthusiasm for the current movement and praised architects such as Norman Shaw, Webb, Baillie Scott, Voysey and Mackintosh at a time that many in Britain did not. Hermann Muthesius sought to promote the qualities of English design in his own work as an architect as well as a protagonist of the Deutsche Werkbund which was founded at the instigation of Muthesius in 1907. The success and influence of the lavishly illustrated three-volume work can hardly be exaggerated; a new edition was published by Wasmuth 1908-11.
