Wentworth and Company, Boston 1856 - Quarto. 128p. Illustrated with 64 full-page engraved plates. Rebound in quarter leather with marbled sides over beveled boards, the spine with red title labels gilt "In his work as architect-builder he probably planned many buildings of varied types and styles, but was better known as the author of 'Civic Architecture.' This volume, [Civic Architecture] published in 1831, and re-issued in later editions up to 1874, was very popular. More of a complete builders' and architects' Hand-Book than Asher Benjamin's 'Rural Architecture,' it was filled with plans of houses, churches and other civic buildings, widely used by builders of the last [19th] century." (Withey and Withey. Biographical Dictionary of American Architects. p. 547.) Very minor foxing, quite clean and bright About the third edition, but Hitchcock 1158 lists Dayton and Wentworth as the publishers in 1856 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
