A remarkably beautiful Hope's window catalog, the largest and most comprehensive we've seen. Gorgeous, large illustrations and installation diagrams include casements, hardware and fittings, leaded glass, gearing, and specialty windows. The final 65 pages are b/w photos of public buildings and residences in the UK, Europe, Asia, South America, Canada, and the US where Hope's windows were installed. A truly impressive catalog from a company known for its high quality marketing pieces. Quite scarce.
