Reference Book and Specifer's Guide 1979

Published: London, AOA
Date: 1979
Description: 704pp, including adverts etc, diagrams, ills. Loosely inserted is a copy of the 12pp stapled pamphlet "AOA's Claim for Pay Award 1978-79". 22x16, glossy illustrated boards Very good to near fine, inserted pamphlet slightly creased.
Notes: The AOA was the professional body for public sector architects in the UK, working for local authorities, health authorities and the like. This annual reference contains contemporary details of materials, processes and so on. The Pay Claim is particularly interesting as it lays out in detail the devaluing of the professional compared to craft pay scales in the late 1970s, and the fears of the Association that their members were being outmuscled by the major trade unions in negotiations. By the end of the 1980s public sector architects had effectively ceased to exist, making this a glimpse at a lost era.
