BREWERY ATLAS:

Leipzig, Otto Spamer, 1877.

Brauerei-Atlas. Enthaltend vollständige Brauerei-Anlagen sowie Maschinen und Geräthe.

In 2 volumes. Atlas folio (38 x 55 cm): a suite of 25 lithographic plates in printed publisher's wrappers; text in 8vo., (5) pp., 6-44 pp., (4) pp. of advertisements in printed publisher's wrappers. Excellent.

The expanded, third edition (1866-first; 1869-second) of a very rare publication on late nineteenth century German beer making on the eve of the invention of pasteurization. Thanks to technological advances, the second half of the nineteenth century saw a boom in the industrialization of beer-making, marked by the opening of numerous beer factories and beer academies for modern brewers.

The present work consists of an oblong folio suite of 25 lithographic plates and an accompanying text brochure.  The first five plates are architectural lithographs illustrating the façade, floor plans and interior elevations of the Kosler Brothers’ brewery in Ljubljana. The remaining 20 lithographs illustrate the various technologies involved in the production of beer, including kilns, cooling machines, pumps, portable engines, grist mills, etc. Names of companies for the majority of machines are given, making this publication also a beer industry trade catalog.

Founded in 1864, the Kosler Brothers’ brewery remains one of the largest breweries in Slovenia and is part of the Heineken International Co. since 2015. The original building of the brewery was built in 1865 by the German / Austrian architect Carl Tietz (1831-1874), who designed 36 buildings in Vienna alone. He was one of the architects involved in designing the buildings on and around the Ringgasse in Vienna, now part of the Unesco World Heritage Site.

The author of the work at hand, "G. E. Habich," must be George Edouard Habich (1818-1901), also known as Edward Habich. A brewer, inventor, and art collector, Habich moved to the U.S. from Germany in the 1840s, where he made a fortune by opening the first brewery in Boston to make Lager. He returned to Germany in the 1860s where he engaged in art collecting, archaeology, linguistics, and many other pursuits. In 1875, he co-founded the Tepel & Habich brewery in Dortmund (later renamed Borussia), which went bankrupt in 1901. According to the title-page, the editor of the present work is B. Johannesson, who was also the publisher of a beer-industry magazine, Norddeutsche Brauer-Zeitung, and the director of the "First North-German Brewing Academy in Berlin."
