Cast-iron architecture in America :
ISBN: 0393730158. OCLC Number: 37513113

W.W. Norton,. .

The first book on Bogardus's life and work, Cast-Iron Architecture in America describes how iron architecture remade the face of American cities in the mid-nineteenth century, following the appearance of cast iron on the industrial scene in eighteenth-century England and Europe. It documents the role played by Bogardus, who patented his method for cast-iron construction in 1850 and championed its use in America's growing cities.
