About this Item

Charles Bulfinch, Architect of Capitol of the United States, gives the Chairman of the House Library Committee his expert opinion on what can be done to make the library fire-proof; actually, emphasis is on what => CAN'T be done (replacing the wooden arched ceiling with brick), or can't be done cost-effectively (replacing wood alcoves with cast iron), or would create its own problems (replacing wood with stone). The details (and the math) are fascinating: Government document, 19th Congress, 1st Session. Rep. No. 66. Ho. of Reps. 8vo. 2 pp. Removed from a nonce volume; inner margin a little irregular. Spot at top margin. Ink numeral in upper margin of recto. Bookseller Inventory # 12476
