(B&W photographs, facsimiles) INSCRIBED "To _____ _______ / cordially") and SIGNED by Dione Neutra on the ffep, also dated 1986 in her hand. "The correspondence between Richard Neutra and Dione Neutra recounts the difficult early years and the developing philosophy of a man who would change the look of architecture. The letters and diary entries describe the period that followed World War I, with the unbelievable inflation in Germany and the Great Depression in America. The settings range from imperial Vienna to imperial Japan, and from the nightmare of Ellis Island, where Dione became infested with lice, to their dreamhouse in Los Angeles. Along the way there are fascinating glimpses of other architects, such as Gropius, Mendelsohn, Schindler, and Wright, that serve to document the development and critical acceptance of Neutra's concepts, approaches, and attitudes as well as his frustrations and achievements."
