MARCEL BREUER: SUN AND SHADOW - Breuer, Marcel - 1956. [1278275]
New York: Dodd Mead, 1956. First American Edition. Cloth. VG+/VG-. Inscribed by Breuer "To the Bob Osborns with all good wishes' Lajkó December '55." Few architects of the last century achieved such international fame as Breuer. To his friends, he was known simply as Lajko. The Osborns to whom Breur inscribes his book are Robert Osborn, the satirical illustrtator, and his wife Eloid, who started the traveling exhibition program at MOMA and worked with UNESCO in the last 1940s. Certainly Breuer had dealings with Elodie working on his plan for the UNESCO center in Paris in 1952, and he would also been known by Osborns for his work on residences in Litchfield, CT, where the Osborns lived after leaving Manhattan. Dustjacket rubbed and chipped around the edges, book very good. Signed books or materials by Breuer are scarce, and we could find no sales record of his signing or inscribing any book as "Lajko," including this title, in which he reviews his life work.
