HE editors have freely consulted the standard technical literature of America and Europe in the preparation of these
volumes. They desire to express their indebtedness particularly to the following eminent authorities whose well-known works should be in the library of everyone connected with building.
Grateful acknowledgment is here made also for the invaluable cooperation of the foremost architects, engineers, and builders in making these volumes thoroughly representative of the very best and latest practice in the design and construction of buildings; also for valuable drawings and data, suggestions, criticisms, and other courtesies.
