[Architectural History]. Glassie, Henry.

Folk Housing in Middle Virginia: A Structural Analysis of Historic Artifacts.

University of Tenenssee Press Knoxville, TN 1975 Oblong Small Quarto, pp. 231. Indexed, illustrated with b/w drawings and photos by the author.
An interesting study of "the architecture of past thought--an attempt to reconstruct the logic of people long dead by looking seriously at their houses." A look at Mid-Atlantic architecture through the lens of folklore, which the author considers "a natural center for the historical study of artifacts." An interesting approach to the subject by the author of "Pattern in the Material Folk Culture of the Eastern United States".
