A searing indictment of modern architecture from one of the founders of the New Journalism, critics met the publication of From Bauhaus to Our House by noting:"Wolfe's agility continues to dazzle… this book is the hottest topic in Manhattan's architectural salons" (New York Times). With "First printing, 1981" on copyright page: issued the same year as a signed limited edition (350 copies), no priority established.

A splendid copy in fine condition.
