Old House Journal/Old House Interiors Reference Library Collection
Steven Schuyler Bookseller is proud to be the owner of the entire reference library of the famed period home restoration magazine Old House Journal and its sister publication, Old House Interiors. The collection, which starts off with a copy of Palladio Londoniensis: or the Art of London Building from 1734, and runs through to the latest publications from 2009.
Clem Labine, the magazine's originator, and his successor Patricia Poore generally bought visually interesting books with no thought of their potential value. But many of the titles in the collection have become quite rare. The collection offers an array of period works, from early Sweet's catalogs and nineteenth century pattern books to obscure titles on building materials and technologies, all gathered around the period house and its grounds.
