Illustrated with 450 black-and-white photographs highlight this book which “traces the fascinating development of architectural styles in the United States, from the simple wood houses of the seventeenth century to the steel and glass towers of our own day. This invaluable handbook describes the historical background, construction materials, and basic structures and styles (Colonial, Federal, Victorian, Greek Revival, Romanesque, to name just a few). The book is divided first by building function (residential, commercial, etc.) and then by specific architectural period. Technical terms are clearly defined throughout a text illustrated with examples from a unique and ongoing series of drawings of historic buildings, which was begun in the 1930s as part of the W.P.A. project. With these aids, the reader should be able to identify virtually any American structure within its period, as well as any additions that may have been made to it in subsequent periods.” 8.2” 10.8” softback in very good condition. 322 pages.
