Notes

First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author to an unknown recipient and signed by the architect on the title page, dated September 1960. It is also signed by over 80 other architects on the front free endpaper who were associated with Mies, either working for him, taught by him, or were associated with him in a professional capacity. Though the exact date of the ceremonial signing is unknown, in 1960 Mies was awarded the AIA Gold Medal - the highest award given by the American Association of Architects - and it is likely connected to this occasion.
