[Pattern Book]. (trade catalog) Thornton, Rosemary and Dale Patrick Wolicki.

California's Kit Homes: A Reprint of the 1925 Pacific Ready-Cut Homes Catalog (signed by the author).

Gentle Beam Publications Alton, IL 2004 Octavo, pp. 160, a reprint of the 1925 Pacific Ready-Cut Homes Catalog, richly illustrated in b/w
Following on the success of her first book on Sears Kit Houses, Rosemary Thornton now moves into new pastures with this modern reprint of an obscure hard-to-find but important kit house trade catalog. As popular as these houses were in their day, the related trade literature was not saved and is now relegated to the ranks of "collector's items." Rosemary Thornton and Dale Patrick Wolicki have done a service for architectural historians and kit homeowners alike with this reprint. Their passion and knowledge are inspiring. A "must have" for any kit house owner and fan of this architectural genre.
