Rocbond Exterior Stucco. Cover title: Homey Homes.

Harrisburg, PA. The Rocbond Company. No date. Ca. 1927.
Booklet, black and white photo illustrations, color illustrations of differing stucco applications, 21 pp, 12 x 8 1/4 inches, color pictorial paper wrappers. Covers a trifle worn with faint soiling to edges, previous owner's name in ink on title page; folded center pages have come loose from staples; otherwise very good condition. The "Homey Home," we are told at the outset, "is the nesting place where the family is founded and grows in snug comfort and secure protection. To Americans it means far more than the Arab's tent or the Indian's wigwam. For we are not nomads..." The booklet proceeds to picture and describe Rocbond Stucco when used in homes, churches, country clubs, apartments and hotels. The booklet abounds with testimonials from Rocbond users, and the varieties of stucco finishes appear in color on the booklet's last page. An interesting and well-illustrated booklet celebrating the glories of stucco, sadly unavailable to nomadic people. One WorldCat listing (Yale). Item #51413
