Paris, Morancé, mid-1920s to mid-1930s. Each volume except the last one comprises photogravure plates numbered 1-100 (some folding with double numbering) with photographs, elevations and designs of contemporary buildings, interiors and details (and a few colour pochoirs), plans on verso of plates; accompanied by text leaves providing indices of plates and of the architects; the last volume contains 76 plates only (and no text calling for any further plates). A very fine set in publisher's original printed board portfolios with ties. One plate in volume 2 misbound (no. 19 placed between nos. 97 and 98), one half missing of double-plate 53-54 in volume 11. Volume 3 contains an extra plate (two different plates both numbered 51). Discreet stamps "Kooperativa Förbundet, Arkitektkontoret".

A rare complete set of this celebrated, massive pictorial documentation of modern private and public architecture, emphasizing but by no means restricted to France. This set is from the library of the Swedish Cooperative Union Architects' Office. Founded in 1925, it was Sweden's largest architectural office in the 1930s, and a decisive force behind the socially directed Functionalism of that era. It was closed in the 1970s.
