About this Item

Modern quarter brown morocco in original pebbled cloth boards with gilt title. 14 leaves of text (including 2 leaves of "building trade advertisments" at rear); illustrated with 20 lithographs of elevations in color and 20 lithographs of plans. Arguably the most important American architectual plan book for the latter half of the 19th century. This important and scarce folio is complete with full color lithographic plates by T. Sinclair. The designs are primarily Italian villas and Gothic cottages with an essay in the monumental Greek Revival style. Also includes a list of 137 clients for whom the architect designed buildings for in and around the Philadelphia area. Although ALL PLATES PRESENT, this copy LACKS titlepage. The copy as been dated to the 1867 edition by building trade advertisments at the rear of book. Not in Wainwright's checklist of Philadelphia lithographic views. A very good copy showing some light scattered foxing. HITCHCOCK 1003-1005 Size: Oblong Folio. Bookseller Inventory # 001695
