Memorial Library, Lexington, KY, 1889, Original Plan. Willis Polk.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Memorial Library at Lexington, Kentucky. HAND-COLORED. Willis Polk, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, March 9, 1889.
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 7 by 5.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 11 by 9.5 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.
