Considers the work of the Boston-based architectural firm of Peabody & Stearns. "Although overshadowed in the architectural canon by some of its more celebrated contemporaries--such as H. H. Richardson; McKim, Mead & White; Bruce Price; and John Calvin Stevens--Peabody & Stearns was a major player, for both the number and the quality of its designs and also for its role as training ground for young architects. Reaching its pinnacle at the turn of the nineteenth century, the firm also had great success in designing some of the Northeast's most noteworthy country homes and seaside cottages so emblematic of the Gilded Age." (dj) Addresses individual properties geographically and in detail. Fun for architextural browsing.
Fine in Fine DJ. As New. Illustrated throughout with colour plates, focuses on the firm's country house commissions, Annie Robinson establishes Peabody & Stearns as a significant contributor to the development of an American architecture in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, quarto, 247pp.
For it's specificity of subject this book is a worthwhile addition to one's architectural reading, BU,BUT, BUT..............
While the text is good [if not architecturally detailed enough], the pictures, for the most part are only adequate and somewhat limited for a number of these houses.
However the strongest overall impression that this book leaves is the shoddiness of the volume's production values. Paper over less than substantial boards, sub-standard paper stock, et al.
The careless approach to this work is exemplafied by the cover design; a wrap-around photo of Elm Court [showig mostly the servants' wing] that in no ways indicates the size of the structure which was the largest private residence ever built in America, until the appearance of the owner's uncle's Biltmore.
Sixty dollars, indeed! Beware of other high priced books from Norton until you have had a chance to inspect them.
