The Library of Congress and the National Park Service created the Historic American Buildings Survey in 1933, and the Historic American Engineering Record in 1969, to document the nation's architectural, industrial, and technological legacy. The 1983 publication Historic America (cited in BCL3 ) first cataloged both programs. The present volume adds 14,000 more structures, providing quantities for all formal documentation (measured drawings, photographs, pages of written historical and descriptive data, and pages of photo captions), including references to informal documentation contained in field records, and citing full LC shelflist numbers to facilitate the ordering of copies. It also indicates the presence of large format color transparencies scheduled to be transferred to the Library of Congress. Includes just enough b&w photographs to indicate how exquisite and valuable the material is. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
