About this Item: Monacelli Press, New York, 1995. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine -. First Edition. A crisp, clean, slightly rubbed copy with a mild bump to one corner, and a small remainder mark on the bottom edges. Signed by Rem Koolhaas. Office for Metropolitan Architecure; Rem Koolhaas; Bruce Mau; Jennifer Sigler; Hans Werlemann. xxxi, (1), 1344 pp., publisher’s silver buckram, embossed in black and yellow, illustrated end papers. From Publishers Weekly: "Koolhaas, Dutch architect, author (Delirious New York) and cult figure, wants architecture to be "a chaotic adventure," and this massive tome certainly is. Created with Toronto-based designer Mau, it's a huge collage splicing freewheeling essays, diary excerpts, photographs, architectural plans, sketches, cartoons and surreal montages of images. There's also a running glossary of Zen-like definitions, plus fables and parables intended to shake modern architects out of conventional thinking and to dispel urban despair. In one essay, Koolhaas admires Japan's metabolist movement, which fuses organic, scientific, mechanistic and romantic vocabularies. That approach seems compatible with his own innovative, eclectic vision as head of the Dutch firm Office of Metropolitan Architecture (O.M.A.), whose houses, villas, office towers, libraries, colleges, cultural complexes and other projects are showcased here. While some readers may be mystified by a nonlinear hodgepodge, architects, planners and designers will find this frequently outrageous assemblage a provocative repository of ideas." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 008972

Les gravures, non sign?es, sont sans doute de la main de Louis Binet (1744-1800) pour la plupart, mais aussi de Th?odore Richomme et Jacques Firmin Aze : ? Tr?s singuli?res elles offrent des t?tes de femmes si vari?es et si piquantes qu'on peut les prendre pour des portraits. Il faut en attribuer la composition au caprice de Restif, qui, sans savoir dessiner, faisait ex?cuter ses esquisses ou ses donn?es par les dessinateurs qu'il employait ? (Paul Lacroix). ? M'?tant aper?u que je n'avais pas encore donn? aux femmes, dans les quatre volumes pr?c?dents, tous les pr?ceptes pratique n?cessaires, je composai ceux-ci, dans lesquels j'enseigne aux femmes les moyens de conserver le go?t des hommes, par leur caract?re et leur propret? Pour cet article, je leur mets le doigt dessus, en leur disant : lavez vous comme une musulmane (Restif, Mes inscripcions). Bel exemplaire provenant de la biblioth?que de Paul Lacombe, avec son ex-libris grav? sur chaque volume, Paris sans pair. Cohen-De Ricci, 879 ; Paul Lacroix, Bibliographe de Restif de la Bretonne, p. 247 ; Rives Childs, Restif de la Bretonne, 302-303 ; Catalogue Lacombe, 3128. Seller Inventory # 10311
