Sketch of an apartment in New York (not built)

Title

Sketch of an apartment in New York (not built)

Description

Daniel H. Burnham informal sketches for an Fifth Avenue apartment (presumably not built), New York. A large residence in the style of a Parisian "hotel" or aristocratic residence.

This leaf of letterhead stationery with pencil sketches of plans and elevations on two sides is labeled by/attributed by Bennett as being in Burnham's hand, from 1907. The job list in Charles Moore's 1921 biography of Burnham does not have any projects in New York around this time, on Fifth Avenue, etc., suggesting that this is an unrecorded Burnham design. Further research or information is required before other conclusions can be drawn.
