Book Description (Cape Town: David Philip, 1993) 0864862210, 1993. 4to; original burgundy boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper, housed in removable protector; pp. viii + 335, incl. index; profusely illustrated. Corners slightly bumped; earlier owner's bookplate to front free endpaper. Near fine condition. "Just as we have come to talk about distinctive styles of urban architecture in Europe and North America - such as Chicago Style - so Clive Chipkin argues that Johannesburg has evolved a recognisable style or procession of styles that are as interesting and deserving of serious consideration as those of other major cities of the world. Like Chicago, too, Johannesburg was the progeny of nineteenth-century industrial society, and its history is the story of its development as an industrial metropolis tied to the world market. In this lively and engaging work, Clive Chipkin sets the architecture of Johannesburg firmly against its historical context and surveys the development of the city's fabric and cultural style up to the 1960s.".
