House of John C. Schwab, New Haven, CT
H. C. Sturgis, architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, September 25, 1896. 12.75 by 8.75 inches. VG+ condition with light browning along the edges .
Hand-colored Original Plan. John C. Schwab was a Professor of Economic History at Yale University from 1890-1905. In 1905 he was appointed Yale University Librarian and held that position until his death. He was the author of two books, "The History of the New York Property Tax" and "The Confederate States of America". He was married in 1893 to Mrs. Edith Fisher of Cincinnati, Ohio. This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 12.75 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 15.5 by 11.5 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
