1910. Item #A5809
Chivers, Herbert C. Artistic Homes. St. Louis, 1910. Over 900p, between 1000 and 1500 small plans and elevations. Good hardcover (skewed, covers soiled); no d.j. (as issued?). ** A fat litle self-published pattern book for suburban residences and cottages. Chivers published the magazine Home Builder and "developed a far-flung mail order business selling house plans" (Landmarks Association of St. Louis). He was apparently based in San Francisco in 1910. One or two earlier editions were published.
