Kharkiv: KhIIKS, 1940. Item #1178

144 pp. 18,5x13,5 cm. In original printed wrappers. Faded, a few stains and underlines, some creases and tears of p. 11-14 corners (text is attached but readable), contemporary signature on the front cover and p. 25, otherwise very good.

First and only edition. One of 160 copies.
Very rare publication of the Kharkiv Institute of Communal Construction Engineers. It is both a review of early studies of the history of Soviet architecture and a manual on how to compile such works properly and how to learn them.
This particular book was written by Ukrainian artist Mikhail Zubar’ (1907-1992). He studied under avant-garde artist Vasil Ermilov, as well as A. Marenko and I. Padalki in the 1920s, during that time he created a series of engravings. Yet, Zubar’ became known as an art historian rather than an artist.
He analyzed essential sources on the history of Soviet architecture, printed in periodical and book editions until 1940. The text is complemented with indexes of names, books, monuments and geographic objects.
