This was an important work for architects, builders, plumbers, sanitary engineers, and home owners in the 1880s. Over 250 engravings were drawn expressly for the book by the author. The author covers all sorts of water closets, including ancient, modern, pan, plunger, hopper and more, plus attachments, supply valves, and tanks. Very rare; this is the first time we've located a copy.
