Item Description: (No place of publication), ?issued by the Pan-American Union? 1930., 1930. Although this volume prints the programme and rules for the second stage in the Columbus Memorial Lighthouse Competition, its real interest is that it is the only extensive published record of the designs submitted by a worldwide selection of architects in the first stage of the competition, completed in April 1929. It provides illustrations of the ten prize winning designs and of ten other designs which received honourable mention, while eighty-six other designs are illustrated and discussed in a commentary and report by the American architect Albert Kelsey, the competition?s technical adviser. The most striking of the designs featured are by the Russian constructivist architects Melnikov and Tarasov, but there are also able and inventive designs by many Italian, Spanish and Latin American architects, as well as by architects from the United States, France, Germany and England. Folio. 187 + (1)pp, many photo text ills (some colour), 2 folding plans. Publisher?s cloth, original embossed gilt device on upper cover. A good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 03619
