Sq 8vo, 408pp. Hardcover, d/w in excellent condition, not price-clipped and now protected by clear archival covering, text in as-new condition, totally unmarked and barely cover broken with only minute top-edge flecking. This is a near perfect first edition of a very important world recognised work on Interiors and Furnishings that is lavishly illustrated throughout with b/w and coloured diagrams and photos.
