This volume is unique! It appears Montreal architect Peter Dobush assembled these catalogs and had them bound for his use. The first catalog is called "Die Stahl Kirche," by the Copper and Brass Research Association, presenting photos and information about the building erected to house the Evangelica Exhibition at the International Press Exposition in Cologne. The architect was D. Otto Bartning, and it was published in 1930. The second catalog is called "Practical Design in Monel Metal," by the International Nickel Company in New York City. This undated catalog is a manual for architects and metal craftsmen defining the decorative uses and limitations of Monel metal. The photos in this catalog are exceptional! The third catalog is called "Ornamental Store Fronts and Building Entrances in Bronze," by the Copper and Brass Research Association in 1926. This catalog is also well photographed with examples of American design and craftsmanship. This catalog has been enhanced with interleaved pages added neatly with pasted-down photographs from another similar publication. The fourth catalog is called "Ornamental Bronze in Banking Rooms," by the Copper and Brass Research Association in 1929. This catalog is illustrated with full-page interior photographs from mostly East Coast banks. The fifth catalog is called "English Precedent for Modern Brickwork by the Architectural Forum in 1924. This catalog is illustrated with both photographs and architectural specification drawings. The sixth book is called "Seeing the USSR" printed by Intourist of NYC in 1931, highlighting facts about Soviet travel with many photographs of Leningrad, Moscow, and more. The last catalog is called "Metal Doors and Trim: Hollow Metal Construction Details and Specifications," by the Metal Door & Trim Co. in La Porte, Indiana about 1927. This catalog features large full-page images of beautiful 1920s commercial building exteriors which used Metal Door & Trim's products, such as the Pure Oil Building in Chicago, B. F. Keith's Theatre in Cleveland, and the Savoy-Plaza Hotel in New York City. An exceptional find that we are proud to bring to you.
