Plan of Chicago: First Edition - Hardcover Book
This meticulous reprint of the 1909 Plan of Chicago reproduces all 142 plates from the original, 48 of which are in color. It also contains a color plate of City Hall that was omitted from the 1909 edition. A new introduction by Kristen Schaffer details those parts of Daniel Burnham's draft that were excluded from the published book. The most visible document of the City Beautiful movement, this reprint still holds valuable lessons for today's architects and planners.
Princeton Architectural Press's Reprint Series was established in 1981 to make rare volumes on architecture available to a wider audience. The books' beautiful reproductions and finest quality printing and binding match those of the originals, while their 9-by-12-inch format makes them accessible and affordable. New introductions bring a modern voice to these classic texts, updating them to become invaluable contemporary resources. These critically acclaimed books are an essential addition to any library.
