1893. ALLEN, Frank P. ARTISTIC DWELLINGS: GIVING VIEWS, FLOOR PLANS AND ESTIMATES COSTS OF MANY HOUSES AND COTTAGE DESIGNS. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Frank P. Allen, 1893. Oblong 4to. Publisher's cloth backed spine, pictorial boards. 123 pages. Fourth edition. [Hitchcock, 11]. Most of the designs are vestigial remnants of the stick style and are nonetheless representative of thousands upon thousands of houses built at the turn of the century. The present day rarity of these ephemeral publications cannot be over emphasized. This is one of those items which is equally a tra catalogue and a pattern book. Promotional sheet tipped in at free front endpaper, in promotion of the services of L. B. Baker, or Racine, WI, who offered architectural services as well as his own monograph, "Baker's Twentie Century Homes." Minor wear and soiling to covers; pages lightly browned throughout, still, in good condition. (Inventory #: 39659)
