CSERÉNYOS HAZAK (REED HUTS).

First edition of this exploration of the architectural and decorative folk art characteristics of Transylvania by the Hungarian architect Ede Toroczkai-Wigand. Totoczkai-Wigand was highly regarded for his successful adaptation of folk art to modern design and architecture. In OCLC, however, we have not found a holding in any library. The book appears to be uncommon, if not rare. Quarto (26.5 x 21.5 cm); ( 29 +(1) pp. with half title vignette and final page vignette and decorative initials + 15 plates with illustrations printed in black of interiors and exterior architectural scenes.

Original stiff red paper covers with illustrations in black on upper cover, stabbed and tied with cord; paper spine lacking 1.5 cm at spine heel, split and chip at spine head; small ink spot on upper cover; faint pencil marks on lower cover; some dust darkening to outer margins of text; inscription on half title; in all, a very good copy.
