Transepts Section, Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, Newark, NJ, 1906, Original Plan. O'Rourke & Sons.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Cross Section through Transepts in the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Newark, New Jersey. HAND-COLORED. Jeremiah O'Rourke & Sons, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, July 28, 1906.
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 12.25 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 16 by 12 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.
