16 pages followed by 124 b&w illustrations, most are photos. "Aircraft" was the publisher's title, Corbusier added his own, "L'avion accuse ..." "The airplane indicts". He loves the airplane for itself (form and function, material use) and as a metaphor for what it and its like will do for humanity. He extolls "The Birds-Eye View" of what man has created and what man must change. Clean throughout. The front free-endpaper is missing; its removal has caused the hinge to be roughened with some loss of paper over the hinge at the bottom. Also, the pastedown endpaper has some surface loss at a corner due to the removal. The hinge remains strong; tight binding. Boards are soiled and worn at corners and at the head and tail of the spine; the spine is faded. "The New Vision" was a series begun by The Studio; Aircraft is No.1. Please see the images provided.
