A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This photographic and scholarly tribute includes the finest examples of architecture of the Old South from early colonial times to the onset of the Civil War. Encompassing the whole of the South this volume covers the romantic plantations of Charleston to the governers palace in Williamsburg. It spans three centuries of distinctive American architectual forms. Organized chronologically, each period and region is covered thoroughly with many examples of country dwellings and urban structures. From colonial to Federal and from Greek Revival to the Romantic styles, this book illustrates and describes all the important and beautiful styles of buildings - restored, unrestored, and sometimes designs that were never executed.

From Library Journal:

Over the past 15 years, Lane has researched and written extensively about the architecture of America's South, producing seven state surveys, with an eighth on the way. This volume contains the series' highpoints, lavishly illustrated with Martin's color photographs and numerous period drawings and watercolors. Organized chronologically through the Romantic styles of the mid-19th century, the book provides stunning examples from each period and region, ranging from modest frontier cabins to sumptuous state capitals. The important contributions of European and Yankee designers are acknowledged, without slighting the work of such Southern talents as Robert Mills and Gideon Shryock. With broad appeal to an audience of architects, social historians, and preservationists, this book is recommended for larger regional libraries and architecture collections.
