Format: Hardcover
The binding is a little weak and some of the pages are close to separating from the book. However, the pages are clean and in good condition. I was not interested in buying this book at $450 for a pristine copy, so the price I paid was a good deal for me.

By Classicdude on March 13, 2009
Format: Hardcover
The 1975 book published by George Braziller, Inc., is a 9.5 inch by 12.5 inch hardcover facsimile of the 1773 book of thirty three plates by Johann David Steingruber. Berthold Wolpe provides an Introduction in this edition with some information on the life and work of Steingruber, the Inspector of Buildings to the Prince of Brandenburg-Anspach. The ARCHITECTURAL ALPHABET shows buildings, usually a princely palace, in plan and elevation that are in the shape of a letter. A description and explanation of the spaces is also briefly given. Perhaps surprisingly, the results are much better than one might expect. This book is a fun reference for lovers of classic 18th century residential architecture.
