Wow. That's over $3,800.00 US.

Boy seems like a lot. Looking at abebooks.com, there are 2 in the $3,000 range, than it jumps down to a price in the 500s. I guess if you want to pay that much for his signature, go ahead.

I have a first edition, but no signature. Maybe I could squeeze a month's rent out of it!

"The Future of Architecture" (1953) I have only in the diminutive paperback published as a Mentor book (the New American Library of World Literature, Inc).

It's "profusely illustrated" (with 32 plates). In addition to three essays, the contents in the main are a compilation of three lecture series, from 1930, 1931, and 1939. So, hardly fresh material. The last two items are "The
Language of an Organic Architecture," a "nine-word lexicon," followed by something omitted from the table of contents (there is, of course, no index), namely "Definitions" of some of the terms used in the previous. The one
that catches my eye: ORGANIC. "The word organic refers to entity; perhaps integral or intrinsic would therefore be a better word to use . . . INTRINSIC."
