At the Book Fair

I'm taking a break from my sporadic reviews these days to present some finds made at the New York International Antiquarian Book Fair that is taking place this weekend. These are not books I purchased — they are far too expensive for my wallet — but they are some of the few books on modern architecture that I found in a sea of leather bindings, signed first editions, maps, and other older bound and unbound volumes. If you're in the market for some rare architecture books, take a look at the books below (in alphabetical order by bookseller) and then head over to the Park Avenue Armory between now and Sunday.
