Sir Ebenezer Howard is universally recognized as the father of the new towns (or garden cities) movement. The book presents the personal aspects of Howard’s life and a detailed account of the planning and building of the new towns of Letchworth and Welwyn. Howard’s personal life and his work were cross-coupled to an unusual degree, but in order to see both the man and the movement more clearly, the author presents each in turn, in a series of paralleling but separate chapters. No dust-jacket.  Green cloth boards with gilt titling to spine.  Binding strong and tight.  No inscriptions, annotations or underlining.  Some slight foxing, otherwise very good.  Housed in protective mylar cover.
