London: The Architectural Press, 1937. Third revised and enlarged. Original coarse beige linen binding. Missing page 89. Quarto, pp. 224, illustrated with b/w photographs and floor plans. Index of architects' names. Very Good. Item #20089
A very influential book, on the continent and in the United States. Somewhat of a modernism manifesto, and a stunning compilation of examples of modernist design and building. Each of the many examples give country of origin, architect, and any and all intricacies of construction, floor plan(s), regional context, building materials involved, etc. Even the layout and design is quite 'modernistic.' Rather uncommon in this country: we've not had a copy before. A smart book.
