Budapest: [Privately printed at “Fejér és Glatter”], [1923]. Photographically illustrated throughout. First edition. In publishers printed wrappers. 31, (1) p. In fine condition.

First edition of this architectural album, the oeuvre of the firm of the two Hungarian architects Géza Bogdánfy and Gedeon Gerlóczy.

The most part of the book, the forward and the following illustrated pages (pp. 7–21), are dealing with the most important and complex, major work of the architects, the eclectic but predominantly late Neo-Baroque Chapel of Hatvanpuszta. The small place of worship was erected by the assimilated Jewish tycoon, Emil Szávozd-Stern (1867–1935) to commemorate the death of his son, who committed suicide related to a love affair. The photographic illustrations are showing the facade of the building from different angles, its outside ornaments, and interior, and it is also illustrated with architectural plans and section drawings. The rest of the book is illustrated likewise, of a cemetery shrine in Budapest, residential buildings, and a stable in the countryside.
