London and New York: Architectural Association; Charles Scribner's Sons, 1910. 149 plates, as issued in original wrappers for each of the 8 quarterly parts published in 1909 and 1910, the whole in a portfolio with a green cloth spine and green boards printed in black, with cloth ties. The first quarterly part of each year also contains a leaf bearing an illustrated title page for the year and a leaf bearing an Index, which lists all the plates for the year. The 4 parts for 1909 contain 73 architectural plates (including 2 double-leaf plates, each counted as 2 plates); the 4 parts for 1910 contain 72 plates (3 double-leaf plates, each counted as 2 plates). Remains of paper label at tail of portfolio spine. The plates have been hand-numbered in pencil. The wrappers and title leaves have only the London publication information. The plates were produced by the "Ink Photo" process of Sprague & Co., a London business that pioneered this transfer lithography method to create tone in an image that was similar to the rich detail produced by the collotype method, but cheaper and easier to use. A heavy book; for international shipping, it will have to be sent by priority international. In Very Good Condition: cloth is separating along back joint of portfolio and at head of spine; chipping along edges of wrappers, which have generally separated along folds; fore-edge of 1909 title leaf is heavily chipped, not impacting text or illustration; minor chipping along a few plate edges; other than soiling along edges of some plates, not impacting image, the plates are clean and bright; all 8 parts are complete. Very Good. Item #006021
