The standard work on its various forms and uses, including building in chalk, was originally published in 1919 in circumstances identical to those of today. This new edition has been revised and enlarged and brought up to date to include such new developments as cement and stabilised Earth, and it reviews the satisfactory performance of buildings constructed 25 years ago" -- front fold over. .

new Glass
Rigan, Otto B.,
ISBN: 0913374520
San Francisco Book Company, Inc, San Francisco, 1976. First Edition
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: Charles Frizzell -- Photography. First Edition. 700 g; X, 118 pages, illustrated throughout with black-and-white photography, and pages 23 through 86 in colour, some being full page, but exquisitely demonstrating the beauty of the glass windows that are photographed. The book is not a handbook on how to, but rather an exposition of what can be done, and an introduction to the works of a new school of glass workers. Personal. Individual. Line. Fresh. The simple adjectives applied to the new glass. Justice each artist included here is a growing, breathing statement of humanity, so is the art that reflects him or her. The subject matter and approaches is diversifying as the artists themselves, and as long as the artists continue to evolve and change in the dramatic ways shown in this book they will produce a glass art that is neither static nor stale.
