Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James Earlyand#8217;s new book is the first comprehensive account of Spanish architecture and urbanism in the United States. Lavishly illustrated, this encyclopedic volume covers the whole of the old Spanish borderlandsand#151;Florida, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Californiaand#151;and examines structures ranging from a great stone fort in St. Augustine to the buildings which faced the plaza in the French Quarter of New Orleans to the pueblo-style churches of New Mexico and mason-designed stone churches of Texas, Arizona, and California. Early provides not only meticulously researched information on the architectural heritage of the borderlands, but also provides its political, social, and economic context in the period from when urbanism began with a town on what became the Georgia coast in 1526 up to 1846 when American troops took over Santa Fe and Los Angeles.

Book News Annotation:

Early (emeritus, English, Southern Methodist U.) surveys the Spanish architecture of Florida, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, and California prior to 1846 and offers an assessment of Hispanic architecture in the following years. His intention is not only to describe the forms and styles of churches, forts, simple houses, and other structures, but also to shed light on the social contexts within which they were built. In addition to numerous b&w photographs, 16 color plates show examples of the structures discussed.
