TO THE ARCHITECTURAL LEAGUE OF AMERICA, THE EMBODIMENT OF AN EARNEST ASPIRATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE AS DISTINGUISHED FROM THE PROMOTION OF ARCHITECTURAL PRACTICE, THIS VOLUME
TO ITS NATIONAL COMMITTEE ON MUNICIPAL ART AND TO MR. CASS GILBERT, ITS FIRST CHAIRMAN, THE INITIATORS OF THE MOVEMENT FOR THE ORGANIZED IMPROVEMENT OF CITY-MAKING, AND TO THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS, TO WHOSE RE-ENFORCEMENT IS DUE THE MOST NOTABLE SPECIFIC RESULTS, ACKNOWLEDG
MENT IS MADE.
LIKEWISE TO CONGRESS, IN ITS WISE APPOINTMENT OF AN INCOMPARABLE COMMISSION TO STUDY AND REPORT UPON THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NATIONAL CAPITAL, THIS WORK
IS GRATEFULLY INSCRIBED.
HE ARCHITECTURAL ANNUAL will, year by year, gain in permanent interest, since it aims to
record above all the growth and influence of those changes of architectural sentiment that cannot be felt or measured week by week, but the course of which be traced in a review of the longer period covered by the Annual, and in the light of which the significance of contemporary variation may be accurately judged.
Year by year it will be enlarged and enriched to reflect the birth and growth of organic city-making in the United States. Step by step it will report the most notable civic improvements at home and abroad, gathering ideas upon all phases of municipal reconstruction from diversified fields in order that the subject may be fully covered.
Volume One is already at a premium. The few remaining copies of the second edition will be sent express paid to any address for four dollars in advance. Volume Two will be sent upon receipt of the price ($3.50) to any address, express prepaid.
Address all communications to The Architectural Annual, 931 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia.
