THE BEAUTIFUL NECESSITY: Seven Essays on Theosophy and Architecture

By Bragdon, Charles

Rochester, New York: The Manas Press, 1910. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. A noted early 20th century American architect, Bragdon (1866-1946) discusses universal principles behind the harmonious forms and proportions of ancient and modern buildings. His observations and analyses encompass a tremendous variety of buildings, from Gothic cathedrals to Giotto's Campanile to the Taj Mahal, and his examples extend far beyond architecture to the natural symmetry found in the feathers of a peacock's tail, snowflakes, plants, and the human face. 96 textual figures. This copy is inscribed by Bragdon on a prefatory blank leaf. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles and marbled endpapers. Some wear to the corners and tips; otherwise very good.
