Arkhitekturnye al'bomy M.F. Kazakova. Al'bomy partikuliarnykh stroenii: Zhilye Zdaniia Moskova SVIII Veka (Architectural Album of M.F. Kazakova) Text entirely in Russian Cyrillic. Printed in the USSR. Ivory buckram binding, with black- and gilt-stamped lettering and decoration to the spine. Moderately bumped spine head and tail and corners. Folio. 13.5 x 10.5 inches. Text block tightly bound in. Top edge tinted a gray-blue. 324 numbered pages, including about 28 pages of text at the front, and at the end are notes, an index and a bibliography. Hundreds of B&W photographs and drawings and building plans, all on coated stock. Plus numerous full-page and fold-out multi-tone plates by Kazakova, all on heavy beige stock. All pages of this book appear to be exceptionally clean. No foxing or off-setting. The pages still fairly tight. Very gently read. Lovely small-repeat-design DJ, unclipped. Just a hint of rubbing and age-toning to the DJ. There is a thin, vertical, red chalky line on the front wrapper, fairly trivial. The DJ is protected by a clear Mylar over-wrapper. A Very Good copy in a Very Good DJ. Scarce in any condition.
