HAFFNER, JEAN JACQUES. - Compositions de Jardins.
Paris, Vincent-Freal 1931. Quarto by size, loose as issued in publisher's cloth-backed printed boards; 30pp and 44 plates. Text in French and English. Signs of use but nothing too objectionable. ¶ An uncommon book on an uncommon subject: modernist garden design or, as the author puts it, "a new era garden for a new era architecture". Haffner, Professor of Architecture at Harvard, applied principles of house design to the garden and insists that these designs are not to be adapted to period houses - they "belong to our present era of architecture". The handsome plates are plans, elevations and perspectives (mostly birds-eye) from Haffner's drawings.AUD 600.00 [Appr.: EURO 425.75 US$ 459.72 | £UK 367.75 | JP¥ 51126] Book number 8564
