A very nice copy. "Stone occupies an influential position within American architecture of the twentieth century. His early embrace of European modernism elevated him to the forefront of American architects working in that idiom. His subsequent drift away from modernism led to a brief but creative period during which he reconciled traditional values with modern design and reawakened the architectural profession to the possibilities of ornamentation. His designs for major buildings introduced such features as filigree terrazzo screens, reflecting pools, and colonnades that became familiar sights on hospitals, hotels, libraries, factories, and civic buildings throughout the world." - ANB.
