Description:New. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 177 p. Contains:...New. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 177 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. This elegant paper-bound edition of text and colour prints on glossy paper measures 9" x 11.5" x.375. Contained within are iconic images of quite a few of Pittsburgh's most famous buildings as well as some splendid residences, designed by Janssen largely in the first quarter of the 20th Century. The book is new, still shrink-wrapped. The architect grew up in St. Louis, but moved to Pittsburgh at age 31 in 1905, after studying architecture at the University of Kansas, MIT, and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. A repeat client and patron of Janssen was Edgar Kauffman, who later commissioned a vacation home from Frank Lloyd Wright destined to become the most famous home in America. This is a fine copy of a fascinating book. This copy comes from the author's original supply.
