Descripción Brentano's, New York, 1927. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: vg. First edition. 4to. 263pp. Red decorated brown cloth with red lettering on spine. "This volume is not intended in any way to record the history of Spanish architecture or to point out its peculiarities and characteristics, except as they offer opportunities for adaptation in the development of a new type of American architecture. The illustrations record the progress made to date by leading architects in this country in evolving a pseudo-Spanish style, the chief inspiration of which has been derived from houses of old Spain and ideas which originated in the minds of Spanish architects. Everything illustrated in this book is of American design; while the influence of the Spanish is more marked in certain work than others, the American touch is everywhere apparent." Illustrations are captioned b/w reproductions of photographs and architectural plans. Rubbing on corners and head and tail of spine. Minor staining and sunning on cloth. Top corner of pages 187-202 bumped and creased. Tight copy in very good condition. Profusely illustrated with designs by American architects such as Wallace Neff, Addison Mizner, Kiehnel & Elliott, George Washington Smith, Marion Sims Wyeth, Frank A. Berry, and others.
