Most of the Center's architecture books come from a single acquisition: the entire stock of the London book dealer Ben Weinreb, purchased in 1969. Books from all periods, and by a great variety of authors, are in the collection: from Vitruvius and Palladio through the Adams brothers to the école des beaux-arts, and from Horace Walpole through Pugin to Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. The Ransom Center's holdings complement the large resources of the University's Architecture and Planning Library.
