New York House of J. Hayden Twiss 1932 First Edition Paper Fine Issued Without Jacket Periodical 
Introduction by Henry Vincent Hubbard. Illustrated with 214 photographs and plans, including lots of period advertising, some of which is as interesting as the members' work. Mostly, but not all residential work: my own Brooklyn Botanic Garden is here, as is the Playland at Rye, New York, Pomona College, plan for the City of Boulder, Colorado, and one for St. Petersburg, Florida, Princeton University, and a Fort Worth subdivision. There are three plates from the Olmsted brothers and a surprising number of working women landscape architects in this issue. Index of advertisers, but none of the architects, whose work appears alphabetically. Fine in heavy textured paper, gilt embossed.
