About This Item

Louisville, KY: The Standard Printing Company, 1939. This is a very good hardcover copy in blue cloth boards decorated and titled in gilt. Toned and soiled around the edges. Spine faded. Patterned endpapers darkened around the edges, but clean. Blank endpapers foxed. Otherwise clean throughout. This is the 2nd limited edition of 350 copies. One of the scarcest architectural books about Kentucky traditional architecture and gardens, and rare in any condition. It was produced with the assistance of a group of about 200 subscribers, who quickly brought out another edition after the first limited edition of 250 copies was gone. Illustrated throughout in black & white and printed on a heavy stock glossy paper, it has survived relatively well. All text and illustrations clean. It covers over 250 of the most interesting and historically significant structures in Kentucky. Almost all illustrated with at least one photograph. 12" high X 10" wide, 180 pages. This book will be securely wrapped and packed in a sturdy box and shipped with tracking.. 2nd Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
