Upper Staircase, House of Frederic B. Pratt, Brooklyn, NY, 1898, Photogravure. Babb, Cook & Willard.
A Beautifully Detailed Photogravure of the Upper Staircase-Hall in the House of Frederic B. Pratt, Esq. in Brooklyn, New York. HAND-COLORED. Babb, Cook & Willard, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, May 28, 1898.
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 17.25 by 13 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 20 by 16 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.
