IRVINE R.F. - Report of the Commission of Inquiry into the Question of the Housing of Workmen in Europe and America.

Sydney, Govt printer 1913. Foolscap folio printed boards with cloth spine (spine titled by hand); [10],132pp, photo and other illustrations, plans (five folding). Small stamp on cover and title, a couple of minor flaws; still an excellent, fresh copy. ¶ One of the essential planning documents from the first period - the golden age - of modern town planning. And rare. A quick glance at Worldcat suggests that this is well represented in libraries around the world, until you wean out the online pdf version. The slums of Sydney: descriptions, observations and alternatives: municipal and association housing, tenements, the garden city, and the necessity for town planning. The details and examples are extensive, his recommendations clear and concise. Professor Irvine's report on Dacey Garden Suburb quietly mentions that the scheme actually originated with Dacey's predecessor Carmichael.
