Los Angeles: The Garden City Company of California, 1915., First edition. 8vo; 78 pp.; illustrated from photographs, plans, and drawings. Spotting to color illustration affixed to front board; else a good copy or better in original boards. Pattern book allegedly inspired by Ebenezer Howard’s principles of the garden city. Just what kind of house is best suited to this imagined “Garden Land” of Southern California? Any kind of house! Spanish, Colonial, English Cottage, Queen Anne, something possibly Prairie Style, bungalow, etc. are all here and for sale. With plans and perspective drawings of 48 houses in all varieties of style. The concept of a Garden City gets some ink in the opening pages but there is no garden and there is no city--only a gimmick to sell a variety of ordinary plans. Plans priced. Scarce.
