Horizons (Inscribed to Heavyweight Champion Gene Tunney) SIGNED

Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1932. Decorative Cloth. A wonderful Presentation copy: WARMLY INSCRIBED BY NORMAN BEL GEDDES TO HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION (1926-1928) GENE TUNNEY ("To Gene Tunney who has proven himself to be a world champion designer -- best wishes of Norman Bel Geddes 7 August 1933") on the front pastedown. A solid copy to boot of the November 1932 1st edition. Tight and VG+ (a touch of light soiling to the rear panel) in a crisp, price-intact, VG- dustjacket, with mild soiling and offsetting along the panels, and a bit of very light chipping at the spine ends. From the dustjacket front cover: "A GLIMPSE into the NOT FAR-DISTANT FUTURE, a future that will see many if not all of our present notions of form cast into the discard -- when, through the influence of new design, most of the features of our everyday life will take on new aspects for the greater economy, efficiency, comfort and happiness of our lives." Very Good + / Very Good -. Item #21270
