The Puzzle of Architecture. Robin BOYD.

The Puzzle of Architecture

London, Melbourne University Press, 1965.

Small quarto, [viii], 188 pages with numerous line illustrations by the author. Loosely inserted is a folder containing small reproductions (124 × 88 mm) of six illustrations from the book: 'If you review this book, you may wish to use illustrations from the text. If so, you may find the enclosed selection of black and white proofs convenient for the purpose'. We have not seen this folder before, nor have we seen reference to it.

Cloth slightly bowed; top edge slightly foxed; an excellent copy with the lightly used dustwrapper.

'The reader is shown how the architect deals with the artistic and technological problem set by the client; and the history of artistic and technical developments this century is presented by describing the search for a functional, monumental, transcendental design; the search for an ideal architecture for these times' (dustwrapper blurb).
