Full Description

8vo. (4) + 30 + (2)pp, 13 photo plates. Publisher’s printed wrappers (the wrappers stained and soiled). Some underlyings in text in coloured chalk.

A pamphlet prepared at the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research’s Building Research Station. The covers of the present copy are not pleasing, but the pamphlet itself can be warmly recommended for its narrative history of the development of reinforced building construction in Britain and on the European continent up to the outbreak of the 1914-1918 war.
