Eric Mendelsohn : letters of an architect. Edited by Oskar Beyer translated by Geoffrey Strachan with an introduction by Nikolaus Pevsner.
London New York Toronto, Abelard-Schuman 1967.
Tall 8vo. 192pp, photo and other text ills. Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper (the wrapper worn and abraded at its upper margins).
A selection from Mendelsohn’s correspondence, chiefly dating from the 1920s and the 1930s, but ending with his last letter to his wife in 1953. The letters are well worth reading on their own account, but the volume also benefits from a notably intelligent introduction by Pevsner in which Pevsner assesses Mendelsohn’s significance as an architect.
