From the flap copy:

"Nothing which are ultrafashionable or cheaply mass-produced have [sic[ been included. Enticing advertising photographs were avoided and particular stress is laid on factural [sic] information. Each design is presented in excellent professional photos with clearly written captions pointing out the important feature of the design, the material used, and the names of designer and manufacturer.

"A short introductory text prefacing each group gives an overview of the design trend and analyzes the material and manufacturing processes used for the particular type of furniture presented.

"The introduction to the book deals with the function of series produced furniture in our society and offers useful information on numerous aspects of the furniture industry including the responsibility of the designer to the consumer; the relationship between designer and manufacturer, the problem of obsolescence in furniture design and how new lifestyles necessitate changes in the marketing of furniture."

A beautiful copy of this essential design reference. Increasingly scarce.
