9781879335646: A Treasury of Fine Construction Design: 104 Detailed Plates of Early Twentieth Century Interior & Exterior Elements

Originally published as Good Practice in Construction, this is a remarkable collection of detailed construction plates selected from the files of ten leading early 20th century architectural firms including McKim, Mead & White, Carriere & Hastings, Cross & Cross, and Delano & Aldrich. These plates were reviewed and modified by experienced professionals in the various building trades, who added much useful practical information not usually found on working detail blueprints. The result is an amazing collection of 104 highly detailed plates reflecting the finest construction methods of the period. Included are doorways, windows of various types (including palladian and oriel), stairs, cornices, fireplaces, moldings, paneling, sliding and secret doorsQall sorts of interior finishing as well as exterior construction. This is a treasure house of information not found elsewhere. Invaluable for anyone involved in design, restoration, construction, joinery and woodworking, or anyone who has an interest in how such work was done by experts. We showed the original of this book to people in the construction, restoration, and woodworking fields and they were unanimous in recommending that we reprint it; they all felt that there was nothing else like it available anywhere. 126 pages. 104 plates. 81/2" x 11". Soft cover.
