This is the Deluxe Hardback edition in a black slipcase.Slight marking to slipcase,some slight creasing to head of d/j spine,From the foreword.It has often been said that books, as the ideas they hold, have a life of their own. A life which estranges itself from the desire and intentions of the author himself. This book was started several times. In fact, I believe it was written many times. Or maybe, it often rewrote itself, and each time it seemed to take a different course: its own course. It began as a mere bundle of data cards; it continued with the addition of different historical criticisms; it later launched into the field of comparison and illustration; then, it became imprisoned in technical complexity and it ended up being none and a bit of each, It is now what it itself wanted to be: an open area where the character, performing what Calderon de la Barca named 'The Great Theatre of the World', can be seen. A Great Theatre that could be besides labelled as 'Urban Planning'. When the life and works of somebody appear together in a book, as it seems to be the case here, they both can act as enemies and destroy each other. This book consists of three parts: The firsts two, called 'Logbook 1955-1975' and 'Logbook 1975-2000', reveal the work of Javier de Mesones; and the third, named 'Kaleidoscope', collects those experiences which, in my opinion, can provide a better understanding of his work and hence of his humanity." 569pp.
