New York: Reinhold, 1956. First edition. Cloth over Boards. Quarto, pp. 216, indexed, illustrated with b/w drawings and photographs. Very Good; no DJ. Item #20312

This is a pictorial selection of designs from the United States, South America, England, France, Germany, Sweden, and Italy. Almost all the examples shown, apartments, motels, shops, showrooms, banks, clinics, theatres, factories, offices, restaurants, service stations, etc., are accompanied by scaled drawings. This book is primarily directed to the layman as a guide; critical comment has been made for the express purpose of educating the layman to "see" - that is, to look around and ask questions of the owner or architect for the job. It supplies an invaluable check list to the design of buildings which would be an asset to the community.
