Very good in good dust jacket. Robinson, Willard B. AMERICAN FORTS: ARCHITECTURAL FORM AND FUNCTION. Ft. Worth, TX & Urbana, IL: The Amon Carter Museum of Western Art & The University of Illinois Press, 1977. First Edition. Oblong 8vo. Cloth in Dust Jacket. Very Good-/Good +. 229pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. "This volume is the first known architectural history of fortifications in the New World. Although its emphasis is on American Defense structures, the study does not neglect those built by Europeans. The book is an important treatment of a subject that has long fascinated students of art and architecture and of military and architectural history. The drawings will appeal to those persons for whom place-names such as Fort Laramie, Fort Snelling, and Fort Leavenworth evoke strong images and for whom historic site preservation and regional history are major concerns". A most presentable copy showing light soiling to the edges of the textblock as well as some chipping, closed tears, and fading to the dust jacket. 0-252-00589-9 Inventory Number: 005294.
