Description:

"Fourth printing revised and enlarged" (as stated upon title page but, in essence, a second edition). 112 pages. Hardcover; H 31.25cm x L 23.5cm. Lacks dust jacket. Green cloth well rubbed with some staining, spine ends and board corners worn, scuffing along board edges, spine's gilt lettering has modest flaking but remains legible, front board's gilt lettering remains bright but not vibrant. Front and rear endpaper well toned; some pliability evident at the top of the front hinge but no splitting to paper. Several creases to interior leaves which is a common occurrence with copies and thus indicative of a production problem by the book's printer rather than an age-related fault. Illustrated by b/w photographs and floor plans throughout. Classic mid-20th century architectural monograph emphasizing choices for American suburban middle class residences by Boston architect Royal Barry Wills (1895-1962) who favored the Cape Cod design with Colonial Revival influences. This "revised and enlarged" 1946 fourth printing was preceded by the 1940 first edition, a 1944 second printing, and a 1945 third printing all of which had only 104 pages. Only a good copy but still a quite uncommon book. Description copyright David Hallinan, Bookseller. Bookseller Inventory #
