6 Das Bohmische Barock Neumann, Jaromir
Germany Odeon 1970 Cloth Very Good Good Quatro 
This is a beautiful example of European publishing: a spectacular book on the Bohemian Baroque which is half text (in German, we think), and half in black and whites displaying many examples of Baroque art and architecture from the former Czechoslovakia. A sumptuous book in VG condition; the DJ has chips and signs of wear, but is wholly intact and is now protected with a Mylar covering. For those smitten by the Baroque, this book is not just desirable, it is ESSENTIAL. Top notch.
