Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
In 1887, the New York architectural firm of Palliser, Palliser and Company issued a catalog of 250 original designs for cottages, villas, farm houses, seashore residences, summer and winter resorts, block houses, barns, stables, and carriage houses. The present volume meticulously reproduces that now-rare publication. Some 1,500 detailed drawings — among them plans, elevations, and perspective views — are included in this practical book designed "for architects, builders, carpenters, and all who are interested in the subject of building ... or the improvement of wood, stone or brick [structures]." From a four-room beach house to a four-bedroom country home that includes a library and indoor bathroom, this authentic collection also contains details for chimneys, eaves, window casings, and other architectural elements. A charming piece of Victorian Americana, Palliser's New Cottage Homes will be invaluable to architectural historians, preservationists, and restorers of older homes.
