CREIGHTON, THOMAS H., and FORD, KATHERINE MORROW. Quality Budget Houses, New York: Reinhold Publishing, 1954. Quarto, first edition, pp. 224, blue paper-covered boards quarter-bound in black cloth with yellow lettering on spine, halftone photos, plans. Subtited "A Treasury of 100 Architect-Designed Houses from $5,000 to $20,000," this is a relic from an era when it did not seem absurd to build and live modestly in Beverly Hills or the Hamptons. Shows that modernist ideas had firmly taken root, with examples from all over the U.S. Condition of this book: Jacket chipped at edges with a couple short tears at seams. Boards rubbed and sunned at edges. Overall very good.
