176-page Architect and Engineer of California magazine May 1909 Shea & Lofquist

Condition : Lots of wear especially along the spine (see scan of it, above). Lots of dog-eared page corners. About 10 ads have blue-pencil handwritten “X’s on them (see one of them, above). All pages accounted for as best I can tell… the layout is a bit odd, because there are 152 numbered pages, but there are three places where some extra pages are interspersed:

Between pages 16 and 17 are six unnumbered pages of advertising in color (the only color pages in the whole book – but there are plenty of other ads throughout).

Between pages 64 and 65 are three different things – a two-page black-outlined obituary for City Architect of San Francisco Newton J. Tharp – a four-page article titled “Charges Against the San Francisco Board of Public Works” – four pages of random articles with pages numbered I – IV.

And between pages 112 and 113 are 8 pages (A through H) of ads.

The main articles are:

Recent Architectural Work of Frank T. Shea and John O. Lofquist
Cost of Reinforced Concrete Buildings
The Law Regulating the Practice of Architecture
Mahogany for Interior Finish
