Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the 1970s, Lloyd Kahn found An Illustrated Catalogue of One William Cooper, Ltd., in an obscure London bookstore. The Cooper company manufactured portable greenhouses and plant frames, as well as chicken coops, duck houses, rabbit hutches, rustic furniture, and a variety of full-size buildings, all pre-cut at their London plant and shipped to customers at home and in the colonies. This fascinating book is a catalog of the company's plans, lovingly reproduced, for everything from pre-fab greenhouses, chapels, and barns to bentwood furniture. Equally useful to architects, builders, designers, gardeners, homesteaders, farmers, and anyone interested in old-world craftsmanship, the designs in this book remain both intriguing and inspiring. The cover reproduces the original's distinctive black and gold lettering on a red background.

Book News Annotation:

This abridged facsimile of a rare copy of the Cooper Company's 1914 Victorian era catalog can still inspire do-it-yourself gardeners and poultry keepers. The "horticultural providers" catalog features drawings of a wide range of houses for plants, humans and other animals; garden furniture; advice on poultry care; and a map of the UK manufacturers' rustic works complex.
