8vo. xi + (3) + 234pp, 24 photo plates. Publisher’s cloth.
First edition. Pevsner’s book remains one of the most significant ingredients in the literature on twentieth-century British design, embodying, as Pevsner himself states, “the conscientiously considered judgments of one who has tried to follow the ways of the modern movement in architecture, industrial art and the so-called fine arts on the Continent, and above all in Germany”.
