[Architectural History]. John F. Harbeson, A.I.A.

The Study of Architectural Design, With Special Reference to The Program of the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design.

The Pencil Points Press, Inc. New York 1927 Quarto, pp. 310. Index, glossary of French terms. Richly illustrated with b/w drawings, paintings, photos, and plans, and several color plates including beautiful frontispiece. Foreword by Lloyd Warren
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 original early addition is extremely scarce.
