NY: Ives Washburn, 1929. First edition. 140, [4]pp; illus. 4to; black cloth stamped in silver to front board and spine; lacking the jacket. Spine titles moderately rubbed; cloth frayed at tips; textblock toned. Good, with clean interior.

First edition of this work of visionary architecture by American draftsman Hugh Ferriss (1889-1962), an iconic work that exerted a lasting effect both on the worlds of urban planning and architecture, and on the popular imagination (cf. Batman's Gotham City, science fiction depictions of future cities, etc). Illustrated throughout with black-and-white reproductions of Ferriss's charcoal-drawn buildings, both real and imaginary. A solid reference/reading copy, fitted now with a custom-cut clear archival jacket.
