Civilia by WOLFE Ivor de, BROWNE Kenneth,

Civilia The End of Sub Urban Man

London The Architectural Press 1971

156pp illustrated with b/w plates and line illustrations. Foreword by Ian Nairn. Large 4to. Yellow, gold-lettered cloth with good but slightly dusty dust wrapper. The book proposes a utopian idea for a city to be built on disused quarry land in North Nuneaton believing it would put a halt to suburban sprawl in England. De Wolfe, pseudonym for Hubert de Cronin Hastings failed to get the project off the ground but was a tireless campaigner, through Architectural Review and other publications for a humane approach to design. Lovely copy.
