Stuttgart Verlag J Engelhorn nd c 1912
20pp text with 37 photographic illustrations + 20pp beautiful single sided b/w line illustration plates of schemes in the UK focusing on Bournville, Port Sunlight, in the main with architects and locations noted. Text in German. Loose leaf folio. Board with decorated lettering and image of Port Sunlight on front board. Ribbon ties. Very good indeed. Hans Eduard Berlepsch-Valendàs (1849 -1921) was an architect, designer and painter of Swiss origin who developed knowledge of the Garden City Movement in England through visiting himself. He apparently knew Walter Crane and Lord Lever, creator of Port Sunlight and cites Raymond Unwin amongst people he knew. Unwin acknowledges his contribution to Town Planning in Practice. A beautiful item.
