One of Aigner’s Rarest Books

Beschreibung eines neuen holzersparenden und in allem Betracht vortheilhaft befundenen Ziegelbrennofens nebst Rissen. Herausgegeben von dem berühmten Warschauer Architekten Eigner. Aus dem Russischen übersetzt.

Two folding engraved plates. 30 pp. Small 8vo, attractive antique calf-backed marbled boards, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Riga & Mitau: W.C.A. Müller, 1796.

“Zweite Auflage”; we cannot locate an earlier printing in any language. This is a rare work by Aigner (1756-1841), one of the leading architects and theorists of Polish Neo-Classicism, who designed many important churches and palaces in Warsaw, Krakow, and other cities in Poland.

This book, written during a building “boom” in Poland, is concerned with Aigner’s design of a large oven which could fire 100,000 bricks or tiles. The two engraved plates depict various aspects of the oven.

Fine copy. We locate no copy in North America.
