Castles, Chateaux and Palaces in Bohemia and Moravia 

A large and heavy coffe table book with stunning full page photographs (in high quality photo gravure technique) featuring old famous czech castles, stately homes, baroque and renaissance style palaces, churches and monasteries of Bohemia and Moravia. Many of them are national monuments of Czechoslovakia and were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The photos were taken in the 1930s and 1940s. A truly fantastic book!
