Architectural Graphic Standards Paperback – Abridged, 18 January 1989. Abridged from the Architectural Graphics Standards, long the most respected source of design standards for the profession. by Charles George Ramsey (Author), Harold Reeve Sleeper (Author).

by Charles George Ramsey. An indispensable, integral part of Architectural Graphic Standards, this 1997 Cumulative Supplement has been prepared for architects, designers, and builders whose work requires the very latest, state-of-the-art information on materials, building techniques, standards, and regulations.

Abridged from Architectural Graphic Standards, a very popular reference in the building profession, this condensed paperback version offers students essential, frequently used information. It contains a wealth of important design data related to the planning, design and details of architectural projects. Organized around the CSI MasterFormat, the book covers new areas such as historic preservation, sports facilities and energy design. Illustrations are indexed for easy reference.
The book was exactly as described and arrived even earlier than promised. It was packaged with extreme care and there was no way the fragile, old book could have been damaged in transit. I have been looking to buy this book for years, but this was the first one that I found within my budget. I am overjoyed to now own this book in this condition and very pleased to have found a seller with a reasonable price point. Would highly recommend this seller to anyone!

For the content of the book itself, it is exactly as expected. My husband and I are both Architects, so to own a first edition Architectural Graphic Standards is something that we get giddy about. It is full of historic, architectural detailing all beautifully hand-drawn. If you work on historic buildings or just want to see traditional building techniques and details, it is a great book to add to your collection.
This product should be taken off the shelf!!!I have been doing design work on computers since 1985 and still have a design studio. Last month I received a major project to redesign the layout and ad an addition to a Masonic Lodge.Figuring my "Architectural Graphic Standards" might be out of date I thought I'd try this. I would have been better to buy the hard copy! It took 6 tries to even launch, and an hour on the phone. It is impossible to navigate and you can only really work on line. I an out $339 as this can not be returned. If I had bought the hard copy I could created the info I needed and saved over $100.
Through 3 years I had this book while in school, it was an invaluable resource. As many of you know, the work done in arch. school is very design/idea based, and not necessarily rooted in a feasible final product. However, I strived to include as many true-to-life elements in my design, and this book got it done for me. Many standards and sizes, etc. that had my classmates scrambling around on the internet or looking through dozens of books to find were easily found in the index of this book. It eventually became a class resource for a couple semesters until people bought their own.

As a professional, many people's firms have a specialty or three. For instance, I work for a healthcare firm at the moment. However, as a student, you can run the whole gamut of different building types. Despite how far-out some of my designs were, the fact that they were rooted in current, workable building methods and systems that were detailed out helped me immensely when applying for jobs. Knowing the details and showing them in your design is not only good for your reputation, but good for ability as an architect.

I'd recommend this to many arch students if the price is right for you. I happened upon it at a time with the book (no CD) was around $80 or $90. Of the dozens of textbooks I still have, this is one resource book I know I'll be consulting for a while.
Having the 3.0 version, I was seriously disappointed in this version. You no longer get the full page, you only get pictures and charts. If you are going to buy a CD version, I would go with the 3.0 version as it is better in so many ways. I will stick to the 3.0 version and this will collect dust on the shelf.
This is such a handy reference! As a builder it nice to have one place to find a "standard" by which to work around and it's a book so it's easy to mark the page and show a client or a sub while having a discussion.
This is an excellent resource for anyone looking to understand traditional building materials and methods. The printing is excellent. The actual plates from the original work are valuable not only for the technical information they contain, but the artistry with which they were composed is superb.

If you already have a copy of the 2nd or 3rd edition (perhaps even 4th?, but I only have seen the former), this book is superfluous. The material contained herein is essentially the same and in the next two additions. If you can find a copy of the 3rd edition, I would recommend that to anyone looking for an old Architectural Graphics Standards, as it contains some additional information.

About the contents: This book is particularly useful regarding masonry construction, including terra-cotta facades. It also shows traditional woodwork details, but only to the extent that the modern AGS editions do--that is to say, there is something to be desired. If that is your interest, there are numerous other books on that subject available on Amazon (just search for them).
Already familiar w/ this book as I had the hardbound years and years back. Gave it to a house designer friend back then, and then recently found myself missing the reference to design details so this used softbound paperback is just the ticket.
More a coffee table book this day and age; however there isn't a Revit drawing in existence that can touch the linework here. How to convince principals to let me work with a ruling pen...

At any rate, the illustrations are clear and detailed. You can still learn lettering and perspective from the examples. Definite library quality material.
