An Illustrated Weekly Journal of Architecture and the Building Trades.

Each number is accompanied by six fine quarto illustrations, while illustrative cuts are liberally used in the text.  Although the paper addresses itself primarily to architects and builders, by its discussions upon matters of interest common to those engaged in building pursuits, it is the object of the editors to make it acceptable and necessary to that large portion of the educated classes who are interested in and appreciate the importance of good architectural surroundings, to civil and sanitary engineers, draughtsmen, antiquaries, craftsmen of all kinds, and all intelligent readers.

As an indication of the feeling with which this journal is regarded by the profession, we quote the following extract from a report of a committee of the American Institute of Architects upon “American Architectural Journals":—­

“At Boston, Mass., is issued the AMERICAN ARCHITECT AND BUILDING NEWS, a weekly of the first class, and, it must be acknowledged, the only journal in this country that can compare favorably with the great London architectural publications.  It is very liberally illustrated with full-page lithographic impressions of the latest designs of our most noted architects, and with occasional views of celebrated European buildings.  Once a month a fine gelatine print is issued in a special edition.  Its editorial department is conducted in a scholarly, courteous, and, at the same time, independent tone, and its selections made with excellent judgment.  It is the accepted exemplar of American architectural practice, and is found in the office of almost every architect in the Union.”—­April 15, 1885.
