1948 Mechanization Takes Command
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
This work was known for establishing a new type of historiography. It deals with anonymous history, means of mechanization, and mechanization's encounters with the household, the organic and human surroundings.
Written by Sigfried Giedion (often misspelt 'Siegfried'), a Swiss historian known for his two works, this and 'Space, Time and Architecture', which had an enormous influence on the Independent Group at the Institute of Contemporary Arts.
Illustrated with in-text diagrams and illustrations throughout.
A first edition of this seminal work.
In the publisher's original full cloth binding. Externally generally smart; a few paint splatters to the tail of the spine, and some bumping to the head and tail of the spine and extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean, with tidemarks throughout to the lower corner.
