Sullivan, Louis H., Kindergarten Chats & Other Writings, New York, Wittenborn, Schultz, Inc., 1947, first edition, 4to (10" x 7.5"), SB, white paper wraps w/ brown titles & green & brown illus., VG / none. Spine & edges yellowed, rear wrap heavily stained.

17 b/w illus. Printed as one of the Documents of Modern Art series. From Sullivan's 1918 foreword:

The central purpose of the work is to liberate the mind from serfdom to tradition and to exhibit man's natural powers in their creative capabilites when expanding in the open-air-of-the-spirit-of-responsible-freedom; in other words, in the true spirit of democracy. From which it follows that the operation of the historic feudal mind and the advancing democratic mind are placed in sharp contrast. The appeal therefore is to the broad intelligence of the public mind seeking not only a knowledgge and understanding of architecture as a plastic art, but, as well, a clear view of its social basis as an art of expression.
