About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Rural homes; or sketches of houses suited to American country life with original plans, designs, &c. by Wheeler, Gervase..

Description:

Early edition of these guidelines for country homes in the United States, as laid out by a British-born architect who lived in the States for almost 15 years. During his time in the U.S., Wheeler designed a number of significant buildings in Philadelphia and elsewhere ? although it appears that after having run into certain social difficulties he was eventually forced to retreat to England. Wheeler offers both broad aesthetic suggestions and detailed practical instructions on construction, heating, landscaping, etc.; the work is illustrated with => 10 wood-engraved plates signed in the image by John William Orr and numerous in-text architectural plans. The spine foot bears the stamp of Alden, Beardsley, & Co. of Auburn, NY, who published the work in 1853; it was originally printed by Scribner in 1851, and the copyright page here reflects that. Evidence of Readership: light pencilled bracketing and marks of emphasis in portions of the "Practical Directions to Amateurs" chapter. 8vo (20.7 cm, 8.2"). 298, 4, [2 (adv.)] pp.; 10 plts. Publisher's textured brown cloth, covers framed in blind with central blind-stamped vignettes, spine with gilt-stamped title and cottage vignette, back joint starting from foot and back hinge (inside) tender; cloth rubbed at corners and spine extremities, and split along portion of back lower inner corner outside. Front free endpaper with pencilled inscription of Helen W. McNamara, back pastedown with pencilled "baby" inscription. Frontispiece browned, not unattractively, with offsetting to title-page; pages with a few instances of tiny spots and light smudges, generally clean. => A good reasonable copy of a good and interesting work, copiously illustrated.

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1855 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: Auburn : Alden and Beardsley 319 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 452370209
