About This Item

Carbondale and Edwardsville: Southern Illinois University Press, 1986. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. Inscribed by Dione Neutra on the front flyleaf. The correspondence between Richard and Dione Neutra recounts the difficult early years and the developing philoso­phy of a man who would change the look of architecture. But as Thomas S. Hines, Neutra's biographer, makes clear, the book does far more than trace the devel­opment of two artistic young people: "What you have here is not only valuable material about the making of an archi­tectural career and of a salutary and in­teresting marriage, but documents of Eu­ropean and American social and cultural history in the early twentieth century." Tall octavo: 240 p. with a frontispiece and numerous textual photographs and illustrations. Original gray paper-covered boards over a blue cloth spine, with gilt titles. A crisp and clean copy. The dust jacket is lightly edgeworn, with a bit of mild sun fading along the spine; else very good or better.
