Cities of the American West; A History of Frontier Urban Planning.
by Reps, John W.
Princeton University Press,
pp. xii, 827, illus. Thick, oblong quarto. Near fine in slipcase. A massive history of urban planning on the frontier. Reps' argument is that rather than being produced by random growth, western towns were carefully planned and that they preceded agriculture as the driving force of settlement. With 500 illustrations (32 in color) this is virtually an historical atlas of western towns.
