Das Englische Haus - seine Entwicklung, Bedingungen, Anlage, Aufbau, Einrichtung und Innenraum in 3 Bänden von Hermann Muthesius. Vorliegend Band 1, illustriert mit über 200 S/W-Abbildungen. Hermann Muthesius (1861-1927) war Architekt und preussischer Baubeamter. Er wirkte als Autor, Geheimrat im Preussischen Handelsministerium, einflussreicher Theoretiker der <<modernen>> Architektur und des <<Industrial Designs>>, Kritiker des Jugendstils und Mitbegründer des Deutschen Werkbunds. Sein schriftstellerisches Hauptwerk bilden die drei in England entstandene Bücher über englische Baukunst, von denen Das englische Haus (1. Auflage 1904, dreibändig) am bekanntesten wurde. Es ist Muthesius wichtigste Publikation und wurde bereits kurz nach seiner Erstpublikation zwischen 1904 und 1905 zum Standardbuch für viele Architekten der damals beginnenden Moderne. Trotz seines hohen Preises musste es wegen der starken Nachfrage erneut aufgelegt werden. Im ersten Band zeichnet Muthesius die Entwicklung der englischen Architektur vom 11. Jahrhundert bis zur Gegenwart. Der zweite Band geht näher auf den Aufbau und die Anlagen der englischen Landhäuser und der kulturellen Randbedingungen ein, während der dritte Band auch Innenarchitektur beschreibt sowie die Neuerungen, die auf die Arts and Crafts Movement zurückgeht die Bücher zeigen anhand von Schwarzweissaufnahmen den damaligen Originalzustand der Bauten. Die Fotografien fertigte Muthesius während seiner Zeit als Attaché der deutschen Botschaft in London von 1896 bis 1903 selbst an. (Quelle: Cover, Band 1)
