Joseph Stübben's "City Building"

Joseph Stübben initially published City Building (Der Städtebau) in German in 1890 as part of a handbook on architecture (Handbuch der Architektur). This Handbook was published in Germany by Durm et al. (1890) between 1883-1933. Stübben subsequently published revised versions of Der Städtebau in the 1907 and 1924 editions of the handbook. The 1890 edition is still published in Germany as a reprint. In 1911 Adalbert Albrecht translated the 1907 edition of Der Städtebau into English. This translation is available as a typescript at the Frances Loeb Library at Harvard University. It contains all chapters except for Part V. More about the translation here.
