102 pages. Folio, 37 x 29 cm. More than sixty tinted plates and twelve in full-color as well as black and white engravings. First published, 1859 by Lippincott. KARPEL B347. "Information on city houses in general and the Philadelphia row house in particular is scarce (there were two modern studies up to 1979). Sloan's work will be highly useful for whoever continues the row-house study, for it is concerned with a wide variety of row-house and street-front designs, including an ornamental store front, a city residence (ie. row house), a private banking house and numerous other city building types with limited frontage and extended depth. The lithographed plates, tinted or in colors by L.N. Rosenthal, are lovely." HITCHCOCK 1189. Spine extremity wear with slight loss, intermittent scattered age-toning mostly marginal, plates 64-65 dampstained lower fore-edge corner not affecting image; overall plates bright and clean. Orig. publisher's brown cloth pictorially stamped in gilt and blind. Very good. Bookseller Inventory #
