ISBN: 0671210513 and ISBN: 0500580103 ONLY! This mostly black & white - and comprising almost exclusively of 103 illustrations - hardcover survey of 22 major works from 1937 to 1959 on only 136 pages was published in English in 1971 by Simon & Schuster in US (Thames & Hudson, London in Masters of Modern Architecture series) following the first edition in Japan in 1968 by Bijutsu Shuppan-sha, Tokyo. An introductory part on 10 pages by Rupert Spade is followed by 101 pages mainly with only B&W and excellent photos (and a few in color), but also hard line plans and sections. On several pages at the end of book, there are a biography, list of works, bibliography, etc. Most of mainly B&W illustrations are photos of an excellent quality, well balanced, crisp and legible by Yukio Futagawa. Like all from the Library of Contemporary Architects/Masters of MODERN Architecture series, it is very good among architectural monographs, and superior to the Masters of WORLD Architecture series (ISBN: 08076*), or Studio Paperback series published by Birkhäuser Verlag under ISBN: 37643* (Basel)/08176* (Boston) or Artemis Verlag under ISBN: 37608* (Zürich)/18740* (London), or the quite mediocrate ISBN: 3764369922 by Birkhäuser / Deutsches Architektur Museum.
