More information on Felix Wiedler’s site:

richard paul lohse (1902-1988) worked as an editor and designer for the swiss architectural magazine “bauen+wohnen / building+home / construction+habitation” in the years 1947-1956. starting in 1952 a special version for germany was launched – here we have the first 12 issues. note the changing colours, and the standardised cover photo placement after issue 4.

After a very quick search, I found various issues, from 3.50 € (1 issue from 1975) to 1100 € (Vols. 7-21 _1952-1966; 29-36_1974-1981)
