Description: 96pp inc very many plans, elevations, photos. Card, 24x15. Professionally rebacked, with new covers, paste-on label and end papers; browning to cover of report, pencil annotations to a few pages. Generally a good firm copy of what was a fragile item.
Notes: The Committee were Christopher Turnor, Cecil Harmsworth, MP, Raymond Unwin and Lawrence Weaver. An important report. Cottages are in the Garden City style. Some of the designs are taken from the 'Country Life' National Competition for Cottage Designs, the jury for which included Walter Brierley, Robert Lorimer and G L Pepler. The condition of most rural cottages at this time was regarded as sub-standard, and these better designs were influential in improving standards.
