24 Art and the Machine: An Account of Industrial Design in 20th-Century America [Copy from "Library of the New York World's Fair 1939"] 
Cheney, Sheldon, and Martha Candler Cheney
New York: Whittlesey House/McGraw-Hill, 1936. First Edition
Cloth 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Very Good. No Jacket Book Association Copy
Black glazed cloth, lettered in silver foil. Front cover cloth is lightly sunned toward fore- and bottom edges, appearing as if another book had been resting on top of it for some time. Top front cover edge toward head of spine and the upper portion of the spine panel itself show what may be slight moisture exposure, resulting in slight spotting/darkening to cloth, also a bit of surface rubbing to rear cover cloth. Slight silverfishing loss along front flyleaf fore-edge (approx. 1/4" hole), front pastedown fore-edge (approx. 1/2" by 1/4"), and lower front hinge (trace loss). Front pastedown shows stamp of "Library of the / New York World's Fair 1939," otherwise unmarked - thus an association copy, obtained directly from the estate of an artist associated with the graphic design of the 1939 World's Fair. Text block edges rather dulled by age, interior clean and bright. xvii,307 pp., illus. w/ b&w plates. Highly influential publication chronicling the pinnacle of the Machine Age aesthetic, formative in the industrial and design components of the 1939-40 New York World's Fair. Designs by Deskey, Bel Geddes, Buckminster Fuller, and others, with photography by Margaret Bourke-White. Exceptionally scarce first edition, with no indication of subsequent printings. Lacks dust jacket. 023794
