Academy Architecture and Annual Architectural Review [from 1896, Academy Architecture and Architectural Review].

London Alex Koch & Sons, 1889-1931

62 volumes. . Small 4to. Mixed set but generally good. Mostly in blue lettered cloth as issued. Numbers 40, 50, 56 and 59 in good paper wrappers. A few ex-library copies with class marks on spine and ancient library stamp on prelims. A few others a little shaky at hinges. Some have hand marked notations showing number on spine. Founded by the Swiss-born architect Alexander (Alex) Koch (1848-1911) it was an international review of contemporary architecture, and, from volume 3, 1891, contemporary sculpture. It includes a few articles, but mainly photographs and drawings. Each issue contains approximately 250 illustrations. The value in the journal is in the review it provides on international styles including the arts and crafts movement and beaux art styles. In terms of building types, it includes housing schemes, cottages, public buildings, commercial buildings, memorials etc. As an overview of the design styles of the first 30 years of the 20th century they are excellent.
