Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788442740, CD-ROM)

The Historic American Buildings Survey aims at the creation of a permanent graphic record of the existing architectural remains of early dwellers in this country. The historical value of such a record is self-evident, the urgent need for it at the present time scarcely less so. For aside from the constant toll of fire and decay, the constant environmental changes of our rapidly developing civilization swiftly and inevitably wipe out the records of our past. Throughout the country scores of significant landmarks are annually being destroyed. The Survey has no power to arrest this destruction, but by making full and accurate records it can make possible a mental or material reconstruction for the present and future generations. "In the present catalog...an indication of the type, material and period of each structure has been introduced, and where attributions exist, the names of architects have been added to the index." The survey is arranged alphabetically by state and the landmarks are listed alphabetically under each state. Numerous drawing and photographs accompany the text. (1941), 2006, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 478 pp.
