Hanfstaengl, Edgar, ed. Jahrbuch der Munchner Kunst [Erster Jahrgang]. Munich: Franz Hanfstaengl 1918. 214p, many black-and-white photos. Good hardcover (front and rear hinges cracked but binding is sound). From the library of Rudolf Wittkower, with a gift card from his wife Margot tipped in. ** Short texts by various writers on the current art scene in Munich: painting, prints, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts, followed by the plates. The first volume in this annual survey, which was later retitled. Index of artists; many ads for art galleries, publishers, etc. Although a few avant-garde artists are included, the work is generally conservative and you'd never know that World War I was going on.
