The author examines hundreds of houses, from humble cabins to magnificent Georgian mansions. The lovely houses of old Charleston, the homes of the Virginia Cavaliers, the Patroon homes in upper New York State, the white farmhouses of early New England, the sturdy stone residences about Philadelphia, all are considered with attention to the details of their histories. This is the first time we've been able to offer this book with its original box, which has the original dust jacket artwork decorating the box cover.
