About this Item

First edition. Folio; pp. 62, [8] ads; illustrated from 46 lithographed plates. Ex-library with stamps to verso of plates, etc.; frontispiece with vertical fold and a few tears; marginal soiling throughout; plates mostly clean; else a good copy, rebound in buckram with original gilt leather cover labels affixed to front and rear covers. A major work by the two Chicago architects showing their work in houses and commercial buildings, as well as offering the usual history of styles, theories of construction, as well as notes on the "French System of Apartment Houses" and dwellings for the new laboring classes. Published in 1869, two years before the fire desroyed much of Chicago. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Loring has disappeared in the mists of time; Jenney went on to build skyscrapers and employ Burnham, Sullivan, Holabird, and Roche. (Hitchcock 740) Scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 009037
