Junghaendel, heliogravures After original views contains 27 superb heliogravure plates after platinum prints, mounted on boards with tissue guards. Large folio. Orig. dec. maroon cloth.

This rare folio by Max Junghaendel, a Berlin architect with a deep interest in world architecture, gathers together images which are “highly descriptive but several are also surprisingly romantic for the work of an architect. Local people are carefully composed amongst the ruins to make ‘pictures’” (Ken Jacobson). A few of Junghaendel’s views of Egypt are known as photographic prints on silk. The book was published in German in 1894 with text by Georg Ebers. This English-language edition appears to be unknown to Beinlich-Seeber. Minor foxing,mostly confined to the margins of the heliogravure plates.
