MODULOR 2   Le Corbusier   Early French Limited Edition MODULOR 2   Le Corbusier   Early French Limited Edition MODULOR 2   Le Corbusier   Early French Limited Edition MODULOR 2   Le Corbusier   Early French Limited Edition


The item you are bidding on is an early copy of  'MODULOR 2' by Le Corbusier, published in Boulogne (Seine) in the original French.

Original pictorial dust jacket is present with the classic design and beautiful color. On the spine is stated 'Editions AA 1968'  The dust jacket does have some flaws including a few creases and closed tears, the worst of which has been tape fixed, but is on the back. The volume is profusely illustrated and one of the real classics of architecture, as it is considered Le Corbusier's (Charles Edouard Jeanneret) most respected work.

This is a limited edition of 3000 copies, if I am interpreting it correctly.

Stated on the back of the first page is:

'de ce present ouvrage constituant la troisieme edition du modulor ont ete tires 3000 exemplaires'

Which free online translation has said to mean:

'of this present work constituent the third edition of the modulor have pull 3000 copies'

The book itself is bound in thick blank cardboard with slight yellowing around the page edges,  creases to front and back boards and some light stains. (See photos) There is some shelf wear to the edges and the binding is starting at the front and back inside hinges but is holding together very tightly.

All in all it is rare to find an older copy of what Corbusier calls his soliloquy. This is a beautiful piece and a must have for any architecture library.
