Presumed first [and only?] printing. Printed and bound in the USA. Dark blue buckram binding, with crisp silver-stamped lettering to the spine. Unbumped spine head and very gently bumped tail, with fairly sharp corners. 9 x 6 inches. With xxvi and 490 numbered pages of text. Alas, the publishers did not see fit to produce an index. However, the text section is followed by numerous unnumbered pages containing 305 B&W archival photos and architectural drawings, and by using the figure number associated with each image the reader can refer back to the principal text and find the number without much difficulty and hence can find the commentary associated with the various illustrations. Note that most of the illustrations are half-page. A very clean copy, and rather tight. Either unread or very gently read. Inexplicably, the top corner of the front FEP has been cut off at a very clean diagonal; in any case this is NOT an ex library book. No remainder marks. No dust jacket present [as issued?]. A Very Good Plus copy. Very scarce in any condition. Perhaps the most famous building featured in the archival photo section of the book is the Hartford home of Mark Twain and his family and designed by E. T. Potter. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
