I do not have the Dover reprint edition, which I did not know existed until a week ago. I have an original 1903 copy that I found in Old and Rare in Marianna many years ago. Printed on acid paper, it flakes off every time I open it up. (No wonder they're rare). Each of the houses has its own page with a perspective drawing, a floor plan, and an approximate cost to build. Most houses are under $4000. the most expensive one, I think, is about $45000 made of stone. You can see many houses similar to these by driving through any historic district. Google Herbert Chivers St Louis to see some buildings that are still around.

A remarkable presentation of the finished ideas of a practicing architect of high rank in his profession, this early-twentieth-century showcase of homes features a wide range of designs from a Midwest master. Reproduced from a rare edition, the work features a splendid array of dwellings, from cottages and bungalows to sprawling mansions. Each house is meticulously illustrated and accompanied by complete floor plans. A poorly planned house is usually more expensive than a modern practical plan, according to the author, architect Herbert C. Chivers. Combining modern methods with attractive but modestly priced plans, Chivers promoted his business with sketches of stylish homes, accompanied by brief captions stating dimensions, prices, and occasional suggestions for modifications. This reprint of his complete guide to domestic architecture of the early 1900s constitutes a valuable resource for home hobbyists, architecture students and professionals, as well as antique collectors.… (more)
