A rare volume, made more so by a warm full-page inscription in the year of publication (1935) by Corbusier to his colleague and the magazine's publicist, Honore Bloch. Bloch, along with the magazine's publisher Pierre Vago, accompanied Corbusier on his historic but ill-fated 1932 Mission to Russia. The poetic inscription reads "To Mr. Honore Block, municipal delegate/From a city that could be radiant by posing the problem well and by believing in it/we could potentially succeed, why not?" With a bold Corbusier signature. In a protective mylar sleeve. less
