moreVanished Towers and Chimes of Flanders, described and pictured by George Wharton Edwards (Penn Publishing, 1916, first edition), chronicles some of the lost architecture of Belgium. Published in the midst of the German occupation of Belgium during World War I, the book describes various Belgian churches, carillons (or chimes), and towns that were damaged or utterly destroyed during the war.
The book is hard back, with a green cloth-covered cover imprinted in gold, red, and black, with an illustration of the church at Ypres. The ornate title page faces a lovely illustration.
The book includes 30 charming plates, many of them color, of the architecture, with the author's descriptions of the history and his adventures in the towns and countryside. Each plate is faced by a sheet of tissue printed with its caption. The book also includes a foreword, chapter "About the Belgians," and index.
The book is in very good condition overall. The cover has some edge and corner wear, a little wear to the gold, but a tight binding. There is a small tear on the front endpapers at the bottom, a larger separation at the back, and separations between a few forms. One endpaper has a gift inscription in pencil (including names and London 1916 Christmas). On the back endpaper, there's a small sticker from a New York bookseller. less
