Simplicial sets of finite type
Given a simply connected CW-space
having finitely many n-cells for every n (for example, CP^infty),
is it homotopy equivalent to the geometric realization
of a simplicial set having finitely many n-simplices for every n?
The answer "yes" is claimed
in Bousfield's - Kan's "Homotopy limits..." (Ch. V, Lemma 7.5);
the proof refers to the Wall's paper
"Finiteness conditions for CW-complexes" published in Annals of Math.
This reference seems to be incorrect,
just because Wall does not consider simplicial sets.
Does anybody know a reliable reference for this assertion?
Is it true?
