Comments:   Ives Washburn, Pub, NY, . Decorated black board covers with silver signature of Ferris on face. A dramatic selection of visionary, Futuristic skyscrapers and cityscapes, both real and proposed. The volume is perhaps the most significant ever devoted to Utopian, Modernistic American architecture. Endpapers neatly stamped ‘Thalheimer & Weitz’, an important Phila. architectural firm in business from 1924 to 1988 (history of this firm included). Neatly written inscription on front endpaper dated Christmas 1929 - otherwise unsigned, but surely from one of the partners to the other, who were friends from childhood. A wonderful piece of original American Modernism with a great and mysterious association! SPECIAL:
Price:   $150.00
