1928. 964. ROUX-SPITZ, Michel. BATIMENTS ET JARDINS. Exposition des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, 1925. Cent planches en heliogravure avec une introduction et des notices par M. Roux-Spitz. Paris: Editions Albert Levy, . One hundred heliogravure plates (12 3/4 by 9 3/4 in.; 32.5 x 25 cm) in the original portfolio. The plates show minor edgewear and occasional light soiling to margins; otherwise they are clean and fine. The portfolio is sunned and very worn, with severe abrasions to the paper sides, and large chips to the head and heel of spine. However, the silver-gilt titles on the upper board and spine are unaffected, and the original ties are all present. An earlier, interior repair to the joints and spine is starting. The 55 page booklet containing the introduction, notes, and plans is crisp and unopened, with just a touch of soiling to the wrappers; the paper spine has split and the signatures are loose. The plates show buildings designed for the Paris Exposition des Arts Decoratifs, 1925, mostly in the Art Deco style, with buildings designed by Le Corbusier, Josef Hoffman, Horta, Melnikoff, and others.
