“Sartoris´s great pictorial survey of the architecture of the modern movement, originally published in 1932, is here in its third, substantially enlarged edition of 1941. It has lasting merit as a visual record of much of the best modern movement architecture built from the late 1920s onwards, and provides especially full treatment of the work of Giuseppe Terragni and other Italian architects of the immediate pre-war period. In other respects its coverage is genuinely international, benefiting from Sartoris´s wide architectural contacts, and the relatively small amount of space allotted to German architects, og whom only Gropius, Mis and Scharoun are properly represented, allows the contribution of architects from other European countries to the much better appreciated than in other international surveys of the style.” Pagan, Catalogue 19, # 108.
