ed. Cl. A compilation of architectural designs from magazines of the 1880s- early 1900s, mostly The American Architect and Building News, and the Architectural Review. About half the plates are of libraries (fine coverage of McKim Mead and White in Boston and at Columbia University), about a quarter are of theaters. There is a Boston emphasis (any student work shown is MIT). Plans, photographic images, and illustrations. 300 plates. Bound nicely in a thick volume. Half-calf, scuffed at extremities. A wonderfully unique piece.
