[Architecture]. Harbeson, John F.

The Study of Architectural Design.

W. W. Norton New York 1926/2008 Quarto, pp. 310. Index, glossary of French terms. Richly illustrated with b/w drawings, paintings, photos, and plans, and several color plates.
This is the only English language text that describes the Beaux-Arts teaching method of architectural design, a rigorous method and style that was a leading force in early 20th century American architecture before being swept away by the rising popularity of Modernism. Originally published as a series of articles in "Pencil Points" magazine, this important reprint edition brings new and timely attention to traditional Beaux-Arts architectural design training methods. For an insightful review of this edition, see Clem Labine's assessment in "Traditional Building" magazine at http://www.traditional-building.com/Previous-Issues-09/AprilBR09Study.html
