Privately Printed/ 1935/ 2nd Edition.
The original 376 pp publication of the ultra-scarce architectural rarity:
'Catalogue of The East Side of New York Apartment Plans'
This being the 2nd c.1935 'new' edition originated by Pease & Elliman,
(now named Douglas-Elliman) the 1st edition of which was published
twelve years earlier in 1923.
This edition is by far the most elaborate book of its kind and shows the typical floor plans of 320 East Side apartment houses.
There is both a geographical index as well as one giving the number of rooms in each apartment shown in descending room size order:
18 rms: #845 Fifth Ave. @ 66th St. (designed by J.E.R. Carpenter in 1920)/
& #410 Park Ave. @ 55th St. (designed by Julius Harder in 1914)/
(17) rms: #'s 820 5th @ 63rd St. (designed by Starrett & Van Vleck in 1916)/
& 907 Fifth Ave. @ 72nd St. (also designed by J.E.R. Carpenter in 1916)/
#'s 630 Park Ave @ 66th St (also designed by J.E.R. Carpenter)/
820 Park Ave @ 75th St (designed by Harry Allen Jacobs)/
& 903 Park Ave. @ 79th St (designed by Robt. T. Lyons) et al.
Also present are wonderful period advertisements for merchants
& vendors to the trade
This classic publication has since been handsomely rebound
in stately navy cloth boards with gilt title stamping @ head of spine.
Thus a most unique, privately-printed rare book acquisition for the residential architecture library.
