The same materials and expense thrown away on an ugly, ill-proportioned building, if guided by good design, would produce an elegant building, and this is why the architect is brought into requisition, to treat the materials placed in his hands so as to give an expression of beauty to the simplest form.It is an erroneous idea, that it is necessary to enclose convenience and comfort in the internal arrangements with ugliness, or that it is impossible to obtain a pleasing and effective design with a good plan and a modern construction. We have seen buildings which, externally, were perfect, but their plans of interior arrangement were absolute failures, being without a closet or pantry and devoid of the comfort and conveniences which one would expect to find. The first and main object of consideration should be the plan, the design being of a pliant nature and easily adapted to the ever-varying forms of comfortable and convenient plans.One of the objects of this work is to show, that in the erection of buildings the last named principles may be combined; also, we hope that it may prove suggestive to those intending to build and to mechanics engaged in the erection of buildings. We are inclined to think that, in many instances, the ideas contained will be something more than suggestive, and they will no doubt be found useful in assisting those who propose the erection of buildings, to decide on the character of the building they wish to erect.It has not been stated on the Plates where and for whom the buildings have been erected, yet the greater portion of the designs have been executed, or are in progress of execution in different parts of the country. In this we hope to have shown what can be done in obtaining good and convenient plans, with tasty and effective exteriors, at very low prices ; the present state of the country has made this a necessity, and has been one of the chief considerations in preparing these designs.The prices given will only do for the same specification the designs were executed by, and the same locality, and will vary according to location and style of material and finish used in construction.PALLISER, PALLISER & CO.,Bridgeport, Conn., January 1, 1878.======================================This scarce antiquarian book is part of our Reference Books Digitized Series.
