Cover for RANDALL: The History of the Development of Building Construction in Chicago

The History of the Development of Building Construction in Chicago

Long regarded as the definitive catalog of Chicago architecture, The History of the Development of Building Construction in Chicago is a treasure trove of architectural and engineering information about buildings in Chicago's central business and residential district.

Generations have relied on the Randall book as the most authoritative and comprehensive guide to buildings in the Chicago central area. This edition is updated with information about fifty additional buildings from the time frame of the original text, 1830-1949; new data for four hundred buildings from the period 1950-98; and a number of additional plates from the rare Rand McNally Views of Chicago.

The second edition of The History of the Development of Building Construction in Chicago is a tribute to Frank Randall's vision and an indispensable resource to Chicago area architects, engineers, preservation specialists, and other members of the building industry.

"[This] long-needed revised and expanded edition . . . will be received with relief and gratitude. . . . The inclusion of almost every building makes the compilation truly useful. . . . A unique book for a unique place." -- Theodore W. Hild, Journal of Illinois History
