Birdseye View, Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC, 1899, Original Plan. Cady, Berg & See.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Birdseye View of the Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. HAND-COLORED. Cady, Berg & See, Architects. From the Architectural Record, July, 1899.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the Architectural Record not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 9 by 6 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 11 by 9 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with very light browning and some minor crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
