The William R. Jenkins Architecture and Art Library has recently acquired a number of exceptional works for its Kenneth Franzheim II Rare Books Room, thanks to the generous support of donors Edward Lukasek and Barry Moore, who donated titles from their personal collections, and the families of Howard Barnstone and Melita Franzheim, as well as Kenneth Franzheim II, all of whom established endowments that allow the library to acquire and maintain superb books on art, architecture and design.  The books listed below may viewed by appointment.  Contact Catherine Essinger at cwessinger@uh.edu for more information.
