Chicago: The Office of Mies van der Rohe, . Paperback. 8vo. White wraps. Photographic plates. Unpaginated.

This is a very scarce promotional book for the Chicago modernist architecture firm founded by Mies van der Rohe. The book contains photos and descriptions of some of Mies van der Rohe's most prominent buildings as well as profiles of the firms partners and associates. This copy was gifted to a previous owner by one of those partners, the late Joseph Fujikawa, a disciple of Mies van der Rohe whose business card is stapled inside. A unique copy of this rare title and a fascinating piece of architectural history. Very good. Item #1439
