A handbook of ornament
By: Franz Sales Meyer
Book release: 1849
An illustrated guide to architecture in furniture & buildings.
M. Franz Sales died in 1927. It is shown that there were at least eight versions in English by 1910, and at least one in German . Here in he discussed the symbology, anatomy and uses of the designs seen in buildings of status – both public and private, historic and contemporary to his life time. Concisely written and clearly illustrated a wonderful resource for historians and sociologists alike.
