Victorian House Designs in Authentic Full Color: 75 Plates from the Scientific American" Architects and Builders Edition, 1885-1894 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much of American domestic architecture in the late Victorian era reflected the affluence of a new middle class. Well designed and attractively landscaped, the new homes routinely incorporated many features once available only to the very wealthy. This volume contains 75 exceptionally handsome full-color plates presenting a choice selection of these residences, as well as other buildings.

Reproduced from a rare collection of architectural designs, exquisite full-color plates depict a wide variety of cottages and clubhouses, city dwellings, suburban and country homes, and other structures — even a firehouse and a county store. Most are shown in a meticulously rendered perspective view featuring beautifully landscaped grounds with animals, bicycles, and other realistic touches, along with a complete floor plan, some including measurements.

Designed by architects based in the Northeast and Midwest, the plans embrace a broad range of styles — from a charming three-story brick and shingle "cottage" in Buffalo, New York, and a baronial, ivy-covered residence in Stamford, Connecticut, to imposing residential row houses in New York City and a huge, rambling Chicago clubhouse with turrets, towering chimneys, and a wraparound "piazza."

Of special interest to architects, home restorers, and preservationists, this splendid archive will also appeal to anyone who enjoys a nostalgic and revealing glimpse of the spacious dwellings that graced the American landscape over a century ago.

Book News Annotation:

We continue to wonder at Dover's charming, even elegant books at prices resembling those of the 50s & 60s. (The bloating megapublishers, if they ever take note, must hate & condemn this solid little house for causing book buyers to believe that good books can be produced at modest cost.) This is a fine 9." x 12" reprint of the original lithographs, many with floor plans. Edited by Blanche Cirker, wife of the estimable president, Hayward.
