Stunning Trilogy-Collection of all the important photography - books, published by Karl Blossfeldt in their original state.

Blossfeldt, Karl.

Stunning Trilogy-Collection of all the important photography – books published by Karl Blossfeldt in their original state. The collection includes: 1. “Urformen der Kunst” (″Art Forms in Nature” in the first popular edition from 1935, with its rare, original dustjacket) / 2. “Wundergarten der Natur” – Neue Folge ‘Urfomen der Kunst’ – (First Edition of “Art Forms In Nature: Second Series” from 1932 in its most desirable version: this being the super-rare and sought-after portfolio edition with 120 loose photographic plates) / 3. Wunder in der Natur (First edition in its original state with the rare dustjacket). “Wunder in der Natur” was the third and final publication of Blossfeldt’s seminal photography books, of which “Urformen der Kunst” and “Wundergarten der Natur” are counted as solely responsible for giving the new school of “Neue Sachlichkeit”/″New Objectivity” momentum.

Three Volumes. Berlin, Verlag für Kunstwissenschaft / Ernst Wasmuth / Schmidt & Guenther, 1932-1942. Folio. Pagination: I. “Urformen der Kunst” [Art Forms in Nature]– XVI pages Introduction by Karl Nierendorf and 96 full-page plates / II.

A rare chance to acquire all three Blossfeldt-classics at once and in their most exceptional state.
