Architectural Record, Combined with American Architect and Architecture, [comprised of] Building News/Building Types (January through December)

[New York]: F. W. Dodge Corporation [presumed], 1939. Hardcover. Massive collection of the year's publications in one binding, 12x8.5 inch buckram boards with initial and terminal blanks; professional work. The successive magazines all on coated paperstock with b&w site photography and scattered color reproductions; casebinding done with heavy-duty cloth hinges which are holding well, though casing feels slightly slack and spine titling is completely eroded. Each month is represented with separate magazines (covers thankfully bound in) entitled "Building News" and "Building Types", these serially paginated with substantial gaps in the beginning: as, January begins at p.28 and without any break (except that the "News" fascicle segues into the "Types" fascicle, each with a separate color cover) and concludes at p.104; February runs 40-122; March is 38-120.. and so on. Evidently the first third of each monthly compilation is omitted, publisher's credit also omitted. At any rate, the tome runs some 900 to 1,000 pages and all leaves are fine. There is an extensive treatment of the 1939 Treasure Island/Golden Gate International Exposition.
