Green cloth with gold lettering on spine; white dj with color illustration and black lettering; 322 pp. with 52 color and 159 bw illustrations. Inscribed/signed. "Traces the development of American architecture from the age of Jefferson to the antebellum era, providing the first survey of this important period to appear in a generation. [This book] overturns the long-accepted notions that the chief theme of early-nineteenth-century American architecture was a patriotic desire to escape from European influence and that competing styles chiefly reflected the American struggle for cultural uniquenss. Instead, deep and consistent aesthetic ties, especially with England, shaped American architecture and house designs. [It] shows that the Greek Revival in particular was an international phenomenon, with American achievements inspired by British examples and with taste taking precendence over patriotism." (dj).
