The book is an almost unknown Japanese edition of Le Corbusier’s major work “Vers une Architecture”, published by Crès, Paris in 1923 and one of the most important manifestos of building theory in the 20th century.

Good copy in the rare original slipcase, the slipcase is slightly tanned at the edges and and more tanned at the back. Overall nice copy.
