1881. 2 volumes: III, 171, 35 pp. texts on brick and terracotta construction throughout history and in contemporary domestic and civic architecture, including detailed descriptions and lists of plates, containing altogether 126 text illustrations from line drawings and floor plans, and 160 total (80, 80) brilliant full-color lithograph plates containing hundreds of illustrations of building façades and decorative and architectural details. Some minor soiling and staining. Folio. Vol. I: Full embossed leather, raised spine with gilt tooling, some rubbing and leather loss especially to corners and spine. Vol. II: cloth-backed tie-bound boards portfolio, professionally repaired, contents loose as issued. Paris (Morel) 1881-1890. The spectacular and monumental work is very rarely found complete with the second volume, which is of particular interest. A wide range of buildings and details are illustrated across the plates, including two of Justin Lisch's spectacular railroad station at Le Havre, some early examples of Art Nouveau botanical ornament, decorative tiles, civic structures including schools, churches, restaurants, and railroad stations, and many private homes, very few of which still survive today. Some of the plates also depict structures built for the Expositions of 1878 and 1899, including the Gare du Champ de Mars, Pavillon Céramique, Ministère des Travaux Publics, Palais Algérien, Maison Doulton, and Pavillon du Caz from the Exposition Universelle of 1878, and the Galerie des Machines, Dôme Central, Palais des Beaux-Arts et des Arts Libéraux Pavillon Royaux Fils and Pavillon de la Grande Tuilerie de Bourgogne from the Exposition Universelle of 1889.
