First edition of a collection of architectural designs by the German architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841), "the most highly-regarded architect of his generation, whose influence is comparable with that of Percier and Fontaine in France" (BAL). It includes a total of 170 large engravings after Schinkel's drawings and ground plans for many important German monumental buildings, manors, churches, monuments etc., including around 10 plates of the Schauspielhaus (Konzerthaus) in Berlin, one of his major projects. "Between about 1800 and 1840 he [Schinkel] produced a large number of architectural drawings, latterly in relation to commissions which he obtained as his fame spread (more than 500 drawings were in existence at his death, many of which are now in the Nationalgalerie in Berlin). It was from this body of work that Schinkel made his own selection for the present work" (BAL). "He left his mark German architecture of the 19th century and beyond like no architect since" (Steffens).Corner of title-page torn off, restored, several plates heavily browned or foxed, a few others with tears, all restored. Lacking plates 4, 5, 15 and 90. Binding with some water stains, otherwise in good condition.
