Synopsis: A First Printing of 5000 The dust jacked inner flaps state: "A. Hays Town has designed more than 1000 buildings including schools, churches, commercial buildings, courthouses, banks, offices and residences during his career.... ...during the thirties, Town was appointed director of the American Historical Building Survey for the state of Mississippi. He commented that the measuring and recording of the historical buildings aided him greatly in his future application of design. Moving back to Louisiana in 1939, after receiving national and international fame for his work., Town started his own architectural firm in Baton Rouge. He continued to have a varied practice encompassing mostly commercial and public buildings.Eventually he designed a home for a friend and liked it so well that he began to concentrate on residential design, which seemed 'a more satisfactory outlet' for his talents. Town has received many honors and rewards during his career, including the Natchez Preservation Award.....and the Arthur Ross Award from the National Academy of Design in New York.... His works have been published in Life, The New Yorker, Southern Living, Southern Accents, and most major architectural magazines in America and Europe. This book, which represents volume one, is a collection of 106 preliminary sketches of some of the buildings designed by Mr. Town since the '60. On the page opposite the sketch, the name of the person who commissioned the house will be listed along with the location and date designed." "Book Design by A. Hays Town The front cover shows The A, Hays Town House Baton Rouge, Louisiana 1951"

Book Description Amdulaine Pubns, 1985. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine+. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine+. limited first; First Printing. You will never find a more pristine copy. Now in a protective mylar cover. First Edition First Printing of 5000. Silver lettering on dark blue boards. Containing 106 Preliminary Sketches. Index. A. Hays Town, deceased, was an architect of the old school, practical and forthright, yet with a warm personal style. From the book reviews on Amazon." No student of architecture should be without a study of, even on a limited basis, the style of A. Hays Town. Mr. Town wanted the original drawings to convey to the viewer his sense of style. The drawings and photographs are presented in the casual, uncalculated, genteel manner with which almost EVERYTHING is done in the Delta and Louisiana. You'd never come away from his houses and think "Looks like the decorator JUST LEFT!" Nothing is contrived or 'studied' too closely. It all appears as if the whole flavor and spirit of the Hays house just grew/developed over the years even if the house still smells of fresh paint." May require extra shipping to outside U. S. A. ; Limited Edition; Color Illustrations; Oversize; 212 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 11662
