If you're going to buy *all* the books out there on Sears Homes, you'll certainly want this one in your collection. It's a reprint of the 1912 Sears Modern Homes catalog.

And it has some designs of homes I'd not seen elsewhere and that makes it a valuable resource. But once again, it is JUST a reprint - not a contemporary book explaining the history and ongoing rehab of (now) historic Sears Catalogue Homes.

That being said, I have two copies and frequently recommend this book at my lectures.

This is a great book and I have had a copy for many years. It has a wealth of information in it and I must admit, as with other Sears Homes Books, I couldn't put it down.

There are lot's of photo's and floor plans throughout the book.

Don't skip this one if you collect Sears Homes stuff.

Just what we were looking for. Would buy again. We bought the book as it had the house plan in it that is the house we live in. A new "old looking" craftsman style.
