"Architectural Drawing and Light Construction" by Edward J. Muller, Copyright 1967. Unstated First Edition. An outstanding mid-century textbook whose intent is introduce one to architectural drawing. Heavily illustrated with Instructional drawings and plans. This book is in very good condition, with light cosmetic wear to the cover. I found just a few underlined passages of text and notations on the back of the front endpaper (nothing offensive, the pages are nice and clean overall). Book measures 11" x 8 3/4" and has 450 pages.

From the Preface: "This book is intended for the student who likes to draw and is interested in architectural construction. Although not exhaustive in the many categories of architectural, this work is meant to introduce the important, fundamental areas dealing with the drawing of small buildings. It assumes that the starting point is at the drawing board, and that the first requirement is learning the 'graphic language'." The intent is to teach one "architectural lettering,drafting, geometry, conventional projection principles...Considerable work on freehand sketching is included...Principles of perspective drawing, shades, and shadows, rendering, as well as model building, also are included for the purpose of completing the necessary background experience in architectural drawing."
