When it was published in 1932, this cornerstone edition of Ramsey and Sleeper's Architectural Graphic Standards was the very first book to present the accepted architectural practices of the time in a clear and accessible graphic form.
Now finally available in paperback, this landmark reference still has much to offer us today, with beautifully illustrated practical information on traditional architectural standards, methods, and materials that cannot be found elsewhere.
Covering all facets of building construction from foundations to interior finishes, it will be valued by a new generation of architects, design professionals, and others involved in the restoration and renovation of historic buildings as well as anyone with an interest in architectural history.
I do a lot of work on historical buildings living in New England and a lot of times they do not have drawings. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Brian Mccusker

Great book. Really Highlights the shortcomings of the modern addition of this book. I highly recomend this book for students and practicing architects.Published on February 8, 2008 by T. McCabe
