FREYTAG, Gustav. Export-Atlas für Welthandel und Industrie. 6 pp text. Illustrated with one folding map of the world, 20 maps and 8 charts all done in chromolithography. Oblong folio, 265 x 395 mm, bound in publisher's illustrated blue cloth. Vienna: G. Freytag & Berndt, ND [1901].

An imaginative example of early twentieth-century book design, perhaps inspired by Walker's Statistical Atlas of the United States, published in 1874. The information on World trade is extremely interesting, but it is the design which makes this book far more so. Each of the maps is surrounded by coloured charts which anticipate the work of Otto Neurath in the Vienna of the 1930's. The overall impact of the book design results in the book as an object transcending its subject matter. A rare work with OCLC listing 11 copies, of which only 2 are in the US, 6 are in Germany, 2 in Holland and 1 in France. A fine copy.
