Excerpt from City Planning: With Special Reference to the Planning of Streets and Lots

Finally, and doubtless of more importance than all the rest, has been the splendid and inspiring progress which everywhere is taking place in the fast unfolding science and eager practice of city building - progress in reasonableness, beauty, and fitness.

As a result of all this, the original book - published in 1911 as The Width and Arrangement of Streets, in an edition which has been since exhausted - has been so amplified, revised, and rearranged that a reader will not be impressed by the presence of the old material. Yet it is all here-though buried under the new.

The book, as an exponent of the cause of more rational methods of street platting, has definite mission. But it is hoped that it will prove more than simply propagandist. It is designed, in insist ence upon the less spectacular but more efficient phases of city planning, to help in a practical way the real estate platter - be he owner, dealer, city engineer, or landscape architect. Its theme is that in the platting of streets he will best serve himself who best serves his community. Thus it would promote good housing.
