American Architect in the Public Domain

Looking for full-text copies of the periodical The American Architect, the journal first published in 1876 under the name The American Architect and Building News? Although the journal changed names a number of times, it continued to be published until 1938, when it was subsumed by The Architectural Record. There are some persistent copies of complete issues available online (sporadic coverage 1878-1922), through the Internet Archive and Project Gutenberg and accessible via the University of Pennsylvania's Online Books Page. Partial sets of The Builder (1843-1852) and House and Garden (1911-1922) are also available via UPenn's serials portal.

The Southeastern Architectural Archive holds physical copies of The American Architect, with coverage dating from 1876-1905.
