Rare, only one location shows in OCLC (National Library Mexico). The Planning Magazine, published between 1927 and 1936 by the architect Carlos Contreras and in its final stage by the surveyor engineer Enrique E. Schultz, is the first specialized magazine in this field edited in Mexico. Its value lies in informing us in its 30 numbers, divided into three stages or volumes, of the first efforts made in the country to try to rationalize the growth and development of cities and regions. It integrates, therefore, an invaluable document to reconstruct the history of Mexican cities and to provide the necessary documentary materials to rescue that historical experience that will serve to support the current efforts to better understand the urban phenomenon.. Sold as a set.
