A very good copy of this work on color in architecture in Russia. Conceived as a textbook for architecture students in two parts, the first dedicated to general knowledge on colors dealing with such matters as mixing colors, color and sight, measuring colors, and color perception. The second part deals with specific problems such as lighting, with the most valuable part of the book being practical advice on the correct usage of colors. Among the tables is one which has all the colors matched with areas of use, resistance to light, main function (inside and outside coverage, decor, roof paint), specific characteristics (chemical reactions to other materials) etc.
