Attractive copies of the first three issues of this tile company sales vehicle for the long-time roofing tile manufacturer of "Imperial Roofing Tiles." This bi-monthly ran through 24 issues, ending in 1932, with the first two years focused on English architecture, the last two years on French architecture. Every issue was authored by a different authority and had a specific focus: First is Aymar Embury II's "English Architecture as Source Material," second and third are Edwin Gunn's "Architecture of East Anglia," Part I and Part II. This sharp trio are accompanied by a near fine small 4to 4pp prospectus for the series that came with the first number, "Announcement of a New Series of Architectural Brochures."
