Houses for Good Living

New York: Architectural Book Pub. Co., 1940. Item #014332

Wills's first book, this dealing with all aspects of building a smaller house in 1940. Showing a variety of styles from colonial to modern. Wills's genius was to combine the two--with aspects of the traditional and modern conveniences and features, economically priced. He had to wait a few years for the American suburban housing boom to take off but when it did he was in the right place. First edition. 30.5 cm; 104 pp.; illustrated from photographs and plans. Spotting to covers and rear endpapers; contents clean and unmarked. A good copy in gilt-stamped green cloth, lacking the dust jacket.

Price: $40.00
