The Model Village and its Cottages: Bournville

London, B T Batsford 1906

xi + 68pp + 57 plates of plans, views and details with 6 further plans. Cloth a bit rubbed on spine and edges, but internally very good. Based on a paper related to Cottage Homes, read at the Architectural Association in 1904. Harvey was one of the main designers of the cottages at Bournville. In his foreword he suggests that the book did not do justice to the range of buildings at Bournville, but today it is considered one of the best period surveys of the village. It is particularly useful for its illustrations, including plans showing the layout of the cottages and the village itself.
