A U S T R I A
The Landscape and Architecture

A very beautiful photographic record of full page photographs (in high quality photogravure technique)
 featuring topography, remarkable sites, and stunning architecture of fascinating Austria.

The photographer Kurt Hielscher travelled through the country in the 1920s and made 4600 photos
w/ premier photo equipment; his Zeiss Ikon/Ica camera and Zeiss objectives on Agfa Chromo Isorapid and
Chromo Isolar plates and Isopan films
His book represents the best 304 photos out of 4600 from Old Austria.

This precious book was not affordable by too many people at that time.
And there is no other book of that time which comes close to the printing quality of that title.

from 2nd edition running from 16th-25th thousand.
