North Elevation, Carnegie Residence, New York, NY, 1899, Original Plan. Babb, Cook & Willard.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the North Elevation of the Carnegie Residence on Fifth Avenue, 90th and 91st Streets in New York, New York. HAND-COLORED. Babb, Cook & Willard, 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.
