"Plan for building the city Tel Aviv arranged by the technical department of the Tel Aviv municipality, following the plans of Prof. Patrick Geddes [in 1925] and approved by the Tel Aviv city council in 1926."
[3], 9, 10, 62 pages. 32 cm. Stencil. Two title pages, in Hebrew and English.
The fast growth of the city prompted Meir Dizengoff to invite Patrick Geddes, a Scottish city planner, to create a plan for Tel Aviv. The plan was supposed to create expansive infrastructure for the new Jewish city that was growing at a very fast rate. Geddes's plan was accepted and provides the the very first description of the city. The present city structure, with main roads and wide boulevards, was built according to this plan.
Very rare. Not in the Jerusalem National Library.
Paper jacket with Hebrew on one side and English on the other. The Hebrew side is torn, without loss, reinforced. Brittle paper. Fine condition.
