Yugoslavia - Architecture, Landscape, Daily Life 1926
Slovenia, Croatia, Dalmatia, Montenegro, Herzegovina, Bosnia and Serbia
A very rare book full of beautiful full page photographs (in high quality photo gravure technique)
of the landscape, cities, villages and culture of Old Yugoslavia in the 1920s.
The photographer Kurt Hielscher travelled through Jugo Slavia in the 1920s and made thousands of 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 192 photos out of many thousands from Old Yugoslavia.
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.
Photographs titled in English, German and French.
From the series "Orbis Terrarum", a series of early photobooks portraying the regions of the world.
