Full Description

4to. 92pp, mostly photo ills, perspective views and plans, also including building trade adverts. Recent quarter calf, marbled board, original pictorial wrappers bound in.

An even scarcer sequel to a scarce publication by Baker in 1911 which illustrated designs for small houses and cottages by a wide range of British architects of the period. The architects featured in the present volume include Baillie Scott (five designs), Voysey (six designs), Parker & Unwin, Dawber, Oswald Milne, and Edgar Wood. Less familiar names include a number of minor London-based architects, as well as architects practising in Birmingham, Blackburn, Chester, and Middlesbrough, and it is likely that for some of them this was the only appearance of their designs in a published volume.
