2 Cheney, Sheldon The New World Architecture
NY Tudor Publishing 1936 Second Printing Gilt Lettering on Cloth Boards Very Good + Good + 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall Illustrated 
Lovely copy in red cloth boards with sharp tips and spine ends, bright gilt titles and illust on cover. Internally crisp and bright, spine slightly cocked. 404 glossy pages, profusely illust in b/w. DJ has color loss and light rubbing at tips, small chip at head of rear and foot of frt panel but no text or dj illust missing, displays well in new mylar sleeve. In this book, Sheldon Cheney has made the first world survey of modern architecture as it has emerged during the last forty years. "Except for a few pictures introduced for purposes of contrast," writes Mr. Cheney, "you will find in all the 300 illustrations in this book not a single Greek column or Gothic buttress or Ramesque portal or English-Palladian window." For Mr. Cheney deals only with the architecture which has "grown organically out of the machine-age materials and methods of structure, out of modern needs and modern living, out of honest aesthetics, free of stylistic trappings."
