Front Cover
Anne Grimmer
DIANE Publishing, 1994 - Architecture - 57 pages
Because the subject for historic building interiors is so diverse, this annotated bibliography is not comprehensive, but selective in nature, and thus, may not list all of the references published on a specific topic. Includes those publications that are generally available in print or readily accessible in libraries. Covers: general and historical studies; conservation and maintenance; paint; plaster; metals; textiles; wallcoverings; floors and floor coverings; and wood. Also, includes systems and fixtures; rehabilitation case studies; inspection, evaluation and planning; and safety, fire protection, building codes and accessibility.
