This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...three sashes, each of which is subdivided by vertical muntins into three lights. Of the lights thus formed the extreme outer one on each side is hinged to open. The same arrangement occurs in the walls at the outer ends of the light wells, but the width of the windows is reduced to 16 feet 6 inches.
