Architecture in the United States, 1800-1850 by W. Barksdale Maynard
Book DescriptionEmphasizing the history of ideas, the text addresses such major themes as the role of the picturesque, the spread of the rural residence, and the complex uses and meanings of porches. The author draws on wide-ranging primary sources, including English and American "villa books" and contemporary travel narratives. The volume reproduces rare historic prints and daguerreotypes of important buildings that in nearly all cases have been demolished or altered.
