The recipient, Walter Paepcke was an industrialist and philanthropist most noted for his founding of the Aspen Institute and the Aspen Skiing Company in the early 1950s, both of which helped transform the town of Aspen, Colorado into an international resort destination and popularize the sport of skiing in the United States. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Books signed and inscribed by Marcel Breuer are scarce. Marcel Breuer is one of the masters of Modernism, who extended the sculptural vocabulary he had developed in the carpentry shop at the Bauhaus into a personal architecture that made him one of the world's most popular architects at the peak of 20th-Century design. Among his projects at the Bauhaus was The Wassily, the first all-tubular steel chair. He designed many buildings, including Whitney Museum of American Art and numerous others. (Inventory #: 22041)
