Descrizione libro Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, D.C., 1988. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Fine. First Edition. Folio 13" - 23" tall. Autograph; Inscribed and SIGNED by the AUTHOR. Photographs by James Stafford Phillips and James F. Tetro. Book is large and heavy and will require extra postage for international or priority. A century ago, the popularity of early Washington landmarks like Stoneleigh Court and the controversial Cairo (which, at a soaring twelve stories, shocked District officials into enacting the city's height limit) made it clear that apartment living was here to stay. By the 1920s, Beaux Art and Art Deco palaces offered residents all the luxuries of a first-class hotel: barbershops, ballrooms, rooftop terraces, and indoor pools. Soon other innovations in apartment living -- the garden complex, the cooperative, and the mixed-use building -- put Washington at the forefront of urban planning. Today the resurgence of the historic heart of the nation's capital has created an apartment boom rivaled only by that of the 1920s. Through residents' personal recollections, original floor plans, and more than 690 photographs, Best Addresses offers an intimate tour behind the facades of 162 remarkable buildings. Some have already been destroyed or dis-figured beyond repair, making their preservation here especially valuable, while others continue to set the standard for elegant living in the nation's capital.; Signed by Author; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. Codice libro della libreria 40233
