by Norman Bel Geddes

Condition: Very Good +/Very Good

Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1932. Cloth. Very Good +/Very Good. A handsome copy of the 1932 1st edition of this highspot in early 20th century design. Tight and VG+ (light offsetting to the inner hinges) in a bright, price-intact, VG- dustjacket, with clear tape tastefully re-inforcing several closed tears along the rear panel -- and at the foot of the spine. Very light chipping and creasing as well along the panel edges. Still though, presentable and attractive. Quarto, crisp black-and-white illustrations thruout. (From the dustjacket's front cover: "A GLIMPSE into the NOT FAR-DISTANT FUTURE, a future that will see many if not all of our present notions of form cast into the discard -- when, through the influence of new design, most of the features of our everyday life will take on new aspects for the greater economy, efficiency, comfort and happiness of our lives.").
