About this Item: Boise Payette Lumber Company. 1940., 1940. Issue No. 3.. Twelve page brochure, 10 x 8 inches, pictorial paper wrappers, comprised chiefly of short chatty illustrated articles pertaining to historic homes, rustic homes, home interiors etc. An illustrated centerfold pictures four variants on the floor plan of a two bedroom house, showing various options possible without greatly increasing cost. This plan was the centerfold in a house plan catalog published by National Plan Service of Chicago in 1935, although that company's name does not appear on the brochure's centerfold. A slim grab-bag of a brochure useful as a lumber company give-away, with the two bedroom house plan indicative of 1930s small home design. Seller Inventory # 53837

About this Item: National Home Advisory Association. Seattle. No date. Ca. 1940., 1940. wrappers. First Edition.. Booklet in paper wraps, 10 ¾ x 8 ¼ inches, 48 pp., picturing, through floorplans and a drawing of each homeâs exterior, a variety of inexpensive ($6,000.00 or less) homes. Booklet in good condition, with discoloration and light soiling to rear cover. Contents clean and bright. The plans for the homes are the work of Howard H. Riley (Architect) with headquarters in Seattleâs Vance Building. Riley had earlier (1937) published a collection of home plans titled "Small Homes" which can be viewed on-line. As no mention is made of shortages of building materials, as would be the case following WWII, it is assumed the booklet predates the U.S. entry into that war (circa 1940). Decorating ideas are provided by the department store Frederick & Nelson, long out of business. Homes pictured and described range in size from 550 square feet to over 1100 square feet. An interesting collection of West Coast small home designs emerging at the end of the Great Depression. Modest in size, home ownership is stressed as affordable to a wide public with the advent of financing through the Federal Housing Administration (1934). Good condition with cover issue noted. A useful collection of affordable homes available to the general public as the Depression morphs into the War economy of the 1940s. Seller Inventory # 54752

About this Item: Authentic Publications. New York. 1949., 1949. wrappers. First Edition.. Magazine format house-plan catalog; 10 ¾ x 8 ¼ inches; 48 pp. Text on the interior of front and rear covers printed upside down; evidently nobody noticed or cared. Covers show wear; spine is frayed; creasing and short tears with 1½ inch tear to rear cover featuring tasteful photo-illustrated ad for another Authentic Publications magazine: "1949 Hair-Doâ¦63 Different Styles." Magazineâs short chapters ostensibly provide all you need to know about having a home built to your specifications. Page after black-and-white page picture homes of various styles identified with catchy names. Each page, in addition to the home illustration, provides a floor plan with dimensions, and ground-level elevations (or profiles) of the home. Most homes feature a one car garage appended to the main structure, occasionally appearing as an afterthought. What is quite interesting among the squatty structures of "modern design" are "sun decks" situated on the asbestos-sheeted garage roof, accessed from an exterior staircase (so handy!) Paragraphs at front of booklet discuss Selection of a Lot, Planning the Home, Costs and Budget, Contractors, etc. while chapters at rear focus on Interior Decorating. Special attention is given to what is termed "Occult Balance" in dà corâ"an arcane if not unique term of art presumably employed by decorators. Magazine is published by Geographica Map Company, Inc., whose full-page listing of maps and atlases appears upside down on verso of front cover. A gem. Seller Inventory # 54753

About this Item: Garlinghouse. Topeka, Kansas. 1949., 1949. Booklet promoting exceedingly small but inexpensive houses to meet post WWII housing demands; 10 1/2 x 8 inches; 16 pp., paper wrappers; illustrated with line drawings, floor plans, and descriptive text. Construction materials include poured concrete for foundations, asbestos-cement shingles, concrete block masonry, etc. Some but not all homes feature either basements or attics (with disappearing stairway) while one model features a "bed closet" in the living room to supplement the home's single bedroom. "Small" is the operative term that describes these post-war houses. Fine condition. The avowed intent of the 1949 Economy Housing Program was to encourage "mass production throughout the country of lower priced homes for that great portion of the public who have moderate incomes." (Lewiston [Maine] Daily Sun; 1-29-49) The Garlinghouse booklet is indicative of the dire straits confronting many Americans with regard to housing in post-World War II America.

About this Item: Standard Homes Company. Raleigh, N.C. 1946., 1946. Booklet, 11 x 8 1/2 inches, 24 pp including color pictorial covers, featuring plans for 23 homes "Standardized to Avoid Waste." Text states "42 floor plans for 5, 6, & 7 rooms," the number referencing the flexible room dimensions in a number of the plans. Homes are illustrated with good quality black and white photos. Most floor plans appear to have home heating located strategically in the structure's central hallway. Many of the plans can be augmented with porches and attached garages, with complete plans and specifications available for $10.00. An uncommon brochure in very good clean condition. Standard Homes Company evidently took root in Washington D.C. circa 1921, with a branch in Wake County North Carolina starting in 1937; WorldCat lists several editions of Homes of Today, but none associated with the firm's North Carolina headquarters.

About this Item: L. F. Garlinghouse Company, Inc. Topeka, Kansas. No date. Ca. 1948., 1948. Magazine format home design catalog, 11 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches, 72 pp., color pictorial stiff card covers, featuring black and white photos of numerous homes, two or three to a page, together with floor plans. The catalog appears to be a compendium (or potpourri) of house plans that reach back a decade or more in terms of the firm's history. (Several photos show 30's-era vehicles in driveways.) The focus is decidedly on small homes while "traditional" is a useful term in describing the majority of their offerings. Wear and light creasing to covers, light foxing to a few pages at the front and rear, but overall good clean condition. "Compact," "Attractive," "Economical" are buzzwords in the catalog descriptions, while text on verso of front cover states the firm has "more than 1,200 designs from which you may choose." An imposing publication in which the term De Luxe, employed in the publication's title, has exceedingly wide parameters. Seller Inventory # 53840
