Antique prints from "American Architect and Building News"

Original antique photogravure and halftone prints from the year 1897

Sheet size: approximately 9 x 13.25 inches
Image size: varies, but approximately 6 x 9 inches and larger
Blank verso, unless otherwise noted

These prints are extremely hard to find. The American Architect and Building News had a very small circulation during this time (1897) and these original photogravures and halftone prints only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects.
