About this Item: Woman's World. Chicago. 1927., 1927. Magazine, illustrated throughout in color and black and white, 63pp, 13 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches, color pictorial wrappers. Covers are detached with two repaired tears of 4 inches each; lower right corner of first two pages is creased, otherwise interior is in good condition. A particularly interesting publication published in the belief "that in an age of shifting standards and uncertain moral values home building and home ownership is not only conducive to individual industry, thrift and happiness but is also the very bulwark of family unity and national strength." A wide-ranging number of topics are covered, starting with a page on "The Genealogy of American Homes. How Architectural Types of Different Sections of the Country Vary with the Nationality of Their Settlers" which is accompanied by a page illustrating in color the eight types, including Dutch Colonial Cottage, California Bungalow and French Cottage. There are many pages of photo-illustrations of houses with plans, plus articles on interior design and furnishing, eg. "Modern Efficiency in the Laundry Room," "Simplified Planting Plans" and much more. An interesting all-around view of the American house and its social significance at the end of the 1920s.

About this Item: [National Plan Service, Inc. (?)] Chicago. No date. Ca. 1925., 1925. Oblong illustrated catalog picturing and describing "summer cottages," 11 x 8 inches, 16 pp., pictorial paper wrappers. Catalog held together with staples (not as issued) and REAR COVER is MISSING. Pages are dog-eared and thumbed. Black and white line drawings of the cottages, plus floor plans for each model and descriptive text comprise the catalog's format. Most of the cottages lack bathrooms, while others lack kitchens or offer combined kitchen/living rooms. The cottages' water supply remains a mystery. A number of cottages provide a built-in garage for the owner's vehicle, suggesting the circa 1925 date of publication. Condition is best described as prodigiously used. Interestingly, WorldCat provides two listings for the 16 page catalog, dating one 1910 and the other 1930. Both belong to Columbia University. Lacking substantiation, but acknowledging the presence of a garage for the owner's vehicle, the pre-depression date 1925 seemed reasonable. Certainly the florid text does not hint of hard times: "A half hour's motoring will bring you into the fragrant-smelling countryside - the cooling breeze of the water's edge, or the pungent, health-giving air of the shaded woodland. Build your cottage now!" A 1932 publication put out by National Plan Service, Inc. includes similar illustrations for many of the same cottages pictured in this catalog, with one major difference--a flush toilet has been attached to the back of the cottages in the later publication. (See "Summer Homes and Lodges.") Publisher information is not present in this catalog, but its correspondences to the 1932 catalog support the National Plan Service, Inc. attribution.

MISSING COVERS; light soiling to title page otherwise very good, clean condition.

C. Hunter; C. E. Schermerhorn). Other articles deal with appliances, furnishings, or home maintenance.

Thus "The Story of Grass Rugs as a Floor Covering" is placed adjacent to a full page advertisement for Deltox Grass Rugs; an article on "Laundry Appliances That Lighten Housework" is situated next to a full page ad for Wallace B. Hart "Laundry Appliances of Character," "The Story of Linoleum" is adjacent to the full page ad for Wild's "Supreme" Inlaid Lino, etc. Purposeful product placement. Seller Inventory # 51426

The center section of the folded pamphlet focuses on garages, while the pamphlet, when completely unfolded, depicts, through a series of pictures, the rapid construction of a Redimade bungalow from the arrival of the building's component parts on the back of a truck through the step by step stages that lead to a completed building. Also featured are several different bungalow models available, the largest providing two bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, living room and bath. Unfortunately, no prices are listed in the pamphlet. Heavily illustrated with photos, drawings and floorplans. Overall very good condition with marginal tear as noted. Seller Inventory # 47772

About this Item: The Aladdin Company. Bay City, Michigan. Copyright 1920., 1920. Hardbound. Second Edition.. Color (including four fold-out double page) and black and white illustrations of homes accompanied by floor plans, color pictorial endpapers, 116 pp, index, 8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches, color pictorial cloth covered thin boards (hardbound). WITH FOLDING PRICE LIST tipped in on front pastedown. Some pages lightly sticking, corner creases to a few fold-out illustrations; good condition. An interesting Aladdin catalog depicting numerous "built in a day" homes, both large and small. Includes information on "The Lumber We Use", General Specifications, and Aladdin Service; plus several pages of Aladdin Colonnades, Arches, Built-in Buffets, Book Cases, Kitchen Cabinets, Popular Aladdin Garages, and Summer Cottages. Of particular interest is the diversity of size and luxury offered, well demonstrated in comparing The Leota (page 65), a house with a total of five rooms with The Villa (page 66-67) a two-story house of thirteen rooms. It is interesting to compare the optimism and sense of design conveyed by this post-World War I with catalogs published in the aftermath of World War II where the home a returning veteran might hope for was considerably more utilitarian in design.

About this Item: E. F. Hodgson Co. Boston. Copyright 1928., 1928. Wrappers. Booklet, black and white photo illustrations of homes, cabins, etc. accompanied by floor plans, 64 pp, 11 x 8 inches, color pictorial stiff paper wrappers. Light wear, centre of the front cover is toned; interior very good condition. The booklet pictures and describes a variety of "Portable" houses, structures assembled from units shipped to the site; that is, prefabricated buildings. A variety of structures are pictured and described, from screened "camp houses" to bungalow-style dwellings with attractive furnishings. Hodgson writes in the booklet: "Hodgson Houses are used for summer homes by people who can have anything that money can buy." Pictured in the booklet are various optional home embellishments: entrance porches, screened porches, gabled extensions, etc. Also available from the firm are built-in cabinets, breakfast room furnishings, bathroom fixtures, etc. Itemized price list accompanies the photographs and descriptions of each individual Hodgson building. Hodgson also manufactures "Portable" poultry houses, dog kennels, birdhouses, garden seats, garages and more. The booklet abounds with testimonials, and in the booklet's introduction famous names are summoned in support of the Hodgson product (Rockefeller, Astor, DuPont, Gould, Vanderbilt, etc.) An astonishing booklet, both in terms of the variety of dwellings available, but also for the concept involved: prefabricated units shipped to the building site with all features included ("the house fitted together perfectly; the hardware was attractive; the doors had glass knobs; the dormer windows were provided with window cords; the clothes closets came with rods on which to hang garments. These are the little things which show the thought and care with which you worked out every detail. John C. Jay NYC." An attractive and intriguing catalogue featuring an unusual product; very good condition. WorldCat lists several Hodgson catalogues, but evidently not this edition. Seller Inventory # 50010
