Small 4to. Original pictorial cloth; pp. xvi, [2], 90, [2], xii (advertisements), colour frontispiece and 90 full-page illustrations; very light marking to cloth, ownership inscription in crayon inside front cover, light offsetting from endpapers, otherwise a very good copy of a rare work.
Very uncommon first edition. Arthur Trystan Edwards (1884-1973) was an architectural critic, town planner, illustrator, and amateur cartographer who during the First World War had served in the Royal Navy. The cover shows the Roof Garden House in Bickley, with the cover artwork described in 2015 by RIBA's British Architectural Library as "[an] image charged with the energetic spirit of Art Deco".
