A Portfolio of Detail Plates and General Information; A.I.A. File No. 8-B-2

Bedford, IN: Indiana Limestone Institute, 1949. First printing. Spiral Bound Wraps. Quarto, pp. 15 plus 24 b/w architectural drawings. Very Good. Item #22387

The cost of construction is so high that any price advantage - without sacrifice of appearance, durability or structural value - must, of course, appeal immediately to every architect. It is for this reason that closer study of the more practical uses of Indiana Oolitic Limestone can lead to building choices resulting in greater economy. The detail plates depict an entrance doorway, a store front, detail of steps, a guttered cornice, gable coping, wall facings, stone facing, and much more. The detail plates and other pertinent information result in a resource of useful value to the architectural and engineering professions.
