My book came in like-new condition, without bends, dogears, torn pages, etc. I'm really happy with this purchase!
This book is typical of a number of the genre, nice reproductions of the original plates but little in anything that would give an insight in to the building's layouts, construction and design inspiration. If this book had been reproduced at the same scale as the original then it would make a great coffee table book.
I keep buying these books in the hope I'll find another "Classic Modern Homes of the Thirties." Here is a book the explains the houses, their layouts and the purpose behind their design. The optimist in me keeps buying these books in the hope of finding something similar. This book isn't it.
This book contains floor plans and elevations (both front and side) for both row houses and stand-alone houses. One fascinating aspect of this book is the inclusion of plans for the basements and attics, in addition to those for the primary floors. Also included are designs for gazebos and other structures.
You will see many of your favorite Victorian era architectural elements in this book: towers, covered porches, mansard roofs, and more. A series of detail pages focus on some specific decorative elements: dormer windows, balusters, finials, roof cresting, etc. Overall, an excellent book.
