Description

Great book written at the height of the depression (1935). Script by C E Weitz illuminating engineer, National Lamp Works General Electric Co.

Part One deals with all the "science" of lighting. Sections on production of light, control of light, new forms and types of electric lamps. Part 2 (this is the part I like) captures the architecture and "art" in lighting. From the book: "Between all science and art there is an intimacy which seems to merge the two into a single eventual achievement, even though each may appear to progress more or less independently. In lighting, the two are so intimately related that it is scarcely possible to separate them. Science is founded on exact measurements that establish its boundaries; art, on the other hand, though availing itself of science, is derived from emotions and feelings, and is influenced by many charted and uncharted reactions of the mind." This little book covers it all.

In very good condition. Number written on top of pages when book closed 1935 Part One 68 pages, Part Two 63 pages.
