Prof. Peter Behrens: Die Deutsche Botschaft in St. Petersburg, Sonderdruck des Profanbau (Verlag J.J. Arnd, 1914) by Karl Schaefer is a rarely available special print of the former Embassy of Germany in St. Petersburg, Russia, designed by Peter Behrens and completed in 1912. The building was originally published in the German professional journal Der Profanbau – Zeitschrift für Architektur und Bauwesen. The publication presents the building with a short introductory essay and ample images of its architecture, interiors, and furniture.
The text is in Germany. The publication is richly illustrated with architectural drawings and black-and-white photos.
Our copy in stock is an ex-library copy, and it is still in nice condition. The pages are clean except for the usual library stamps and markings. According to the library label, it has only been borrowed once in 1925. The covers are faded at the edges, and they show signs of shelf wear and use.
