Description:
New York: W. W. Norton & Co., 1932. Stated first edition (first printing) of the definitive book on this style of Modern architecture: "Those who have buried architecture, whether from a thwarted desire to continue the past of from an over-anxiety to modify and hurry on the future, have been premature: We have an architecture still." Features the work of Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, Otto Haesler, Pierre Jeanneret, Miës van der Rohe, J.J.P. Oud and more. Though Frank Lloyd Wright was influential among this group, his current work was not deemed 'in the style'; Alvar Aalto has but one building pictured. Hardcover, full brick-red buckram, gilt & black titling. Light general wear, corners lightly rubbed; spine lightly creased, faintly discolored; lacking the scarce jacket; former owner's name on title page; text & plates clean. 240 pages, indexed by architect & country; b/w photo plates, plans.. First Edition. Buckram. Good/No Jacket. 7¾" by… Read more
