zeeland, michigan: The Herman Miller Furniture Co. , 1948. . Oblong 4to. 70 pp. Is there a more iconic American modern furniture design catalog than this one, the first issued by The Herman Miller Furniture Company. It is written that this is also George Nelson's first book. One would wish for a dj. as perfect as the binding but even this dj. is something to be proud of. Cloth binding is as bright as the day the book was published primarily because it has been protected by its dj. for the last 60 years. The dj. shows much wear however. It is 90 % present with the flaps pristine with the original price of $3.00 intact i.e. not price clipped. There are 2 chips out of the front cover and a large chip missing from the rear cover. There is evidence on both the front and rear covers of the dj. of the removal of ancient scotch tape contributing to discoloration i.e. a lightening in those places of the teal blue dj. The dj. itself is a wonderful design using the names of the 4 designers mentioned. .
