Prof. J. G. Wattjes

Prof. J. G. Wattjes: MODERNE ARCHITECTUUR [In Noorwegen, Zweden, Finland, Denemarken, Duitschland, Tsjechoslowakije, Oostenrijk, Zwitserland, Frankrijk, Belgie, Engeland En Ver Staten V. Amerika]. Amsterdam: Uitgevers-Maatschappij “Kosmos,” 1927. First edition. Text in Dutch. Folio. Embossed brown cloth decorated and titled in gilt. Unpaginated. 307 black and white plates, 56 plans. Binding designed by J. E. Wiersma. Architectural historians’ bookplate to front endpaper. Publishers spine cloth lightly sunned. Front joint tender and textblock lightly shaken, but a well-preserved example: a very good copy of this magnificent and thorough photographic survey.

9.5 x 12.5 hardcover book with 4 pages of introductory text followed by 307 black and white plates and 56 floor plans. A thorough photographic survey of modern buildings constructed internationally prior to 1927.  It is noticeable that although by 1927 modern movement architectural styles were dominant in Germany and France, and spreading to other European countries, Wattjes's illustrations of recent English architecture are dominated by the vernacular domestic work of architects such as Clough Williams-Ellis, Oliver Hill and Oswald P. Milne.
