3 Barrett, Anthony A.; Rhodri Windsor Liscombe Francis Rattenbury and British Columbia Architecture and Challenge in the Imperial Age
Vancouver BC University of British Columbia Press 1983 0774801786 / 9780774801782 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Some creasing top edge if DJ, gift notation on FFEP ; A bright, solid book, DJ in Mylar ; B&W Photographs; 1.4 x 8.9 x 6.2 Inches; 391 pages; "Yorkshire-born Francis Mawson Rattenbury (1867-1935) emigrated to British Columbia as a young architect in 1892. Within months of his arrival in Victoria he launched his brilliant, if abbreviated, career by winning an international competition to design the legislative buildings. While his life was marred by controversy, scandal and, in the end, tragedy, Rattenbury's architecture had an enduring impact on the Canadian landscape and his commercial ventures were important to the economic development of the West. Richly illustrated with over 200 drawings and photographs, Francis Rattenbury and British Columbia is the first major critical study of a Canadian architect in the context of his times. Using unpublished primary sources, including his recently discovered private letters, the authors document Rattenbury's professional career and the evolution of his architectural style. Detailed descriptions are given of some of his most famous projects, notably the legislative buildings and the Empress Hotel in Victoria. Besides working on a number of government commissions, Rattenbury became chief architect for the Canadian Pacific Railway and designed "chateau-like" buildings for C.P.R. hotels in the Rockies, Vancouver, and Victoria. Other projects such as the Vancouver and Nanaimo Courthouses and Bank of Montreal branches set the pattern for institutional architecture in British Columbia. His buildings not only drew attention to the growing importance of the province, but also lent dignity and character to its major centres. Filled with the vigour and confidence of the imperial age, Rattenbury initiated a number of commercial ventures. These included the founding of a transportation system to the Yukon goldfields and extensive land speculations. As the authors point out, these investments were perhaps not undertaken solely for monetary gain but reflected Rattenbury's firm belief in the future of British Columbia and his desire to play an active role in its growth. Unfortunately, his entrepreneurial adventures involved heavy financial losses, among which were ruinous lawsuits involving the provincial government. This pioneering work on Western Canadian architecture will serve as a valuable design source for both the specialist and lay reader. It also includes an important account of the part played by major Canadian companies and government patronage in the development of British Columbia. This professional biography reveals new facets of Rattenbury's life and character which have been the subject of both public and literary controversy."

Only slight edge wear to DJ ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; Color Photographs; 11.10 X 8.80 X 1 inches; 218 pages; A beautifully illustrated book, recounting the meetings and outcomes of an Architectual meeting held in Tehran, Iran in 2002. "In many ways, closed to the outside world since the 1979 Revolution, Iran remains a remarkably rich environment for architecture, both historic and contemporary. A large young population avidly seeks information on trends in the Western world, while the very active Iranian Cultural Heritage Organisation (ICHO) maintains high standards of intervention on the country's considerable array of monuments. It is in this context that the Architecture For Changing Societies, an international seminar, was created. The seminar was held on October 2002 in Yazd, Iran and was comprised of several Iranian and Muslim organisations, as well as a number of leading figures in contemporary architecture. Participants included Seyyed Mohammad Beheshti, head of the ICHO, as well as such internationally recognised figures as the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki and the American critic Charles Jencks. "

Vanishing Vancouver, Kluckner, Michael
11 Kluckner, Michael Vanishing Vancouver
North Vancouver, BC Whitecap Books 1990 1895099242 / 9781895099249 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Illustrated by Author 
Only slight wear to book and dust jacket ; Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. A bright, solid book in near-fine condition.; Watercolor paintings; 12.90 X 9.60 X 1 inches; 208 pages; "Vanishing Vancouver is an extraordinary collection of watercolours painted in the late 1980s, many of downtown buildings and houses that have since been demolished, and others that are doomed by the changing nature and growth of the city." Award-winning author and artist Michael Kluckner takes another look at a city where the only thing that doesn't seem to change is the rapid pace of development. Vanishing Vancouver explores the origins of our landmark buildings and public spaces, working harbour, shops, houses, apartments, urban farms and gardens, and bears witness to the recent dramatic changes that have taken place in them. Many of these changes are the result of city planning policy-initiatives that aim for eco-density and being the greenest city-and throughout the book Kluckner discusses the tensions that have arisen as a result and asks whether the price we are paying is too high. Vanishing Vancouver: The Last 20 Years is a compelling mix of historical narrative, personal anecdote and expert, local knowledge. Illustrated with more than 200 new images-the author's own watercolours and brush-and-ink drawings, as well as archival and private photographs, hand-rendered maps and vintage postcards, advertisements and other ephemera-this beautiful volume is essential and enjoyable reading for anyone interested in Vancouver's heritage, architecture and history.

Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. ; B&W and colour photographs; 184 pages; "Structures that best responded to the needs of those who settled here and represented their spirit and grand visions for life in a new land form Saskatchewan's historic architecture. Dating from the construction of Holy Trinity Church at Stanley Mission in 1854, historic architecture in Saskatchewan is relatively young by world standards. It has been created by architects, unschooled builders, and master craftsmen from many countries. They have established a hybrid of imported styles and utilitarian construction, intended originally to respond only to climate and satisfy immediate needs with the tools and materials at hand. These buildings are tributes to a time of optimism for the future and grand vision for a newly settled land. There is a story here worth telling while we can still see what remains of the buildings and remember the society that they served."
