Virginia was America's most prosperous and populous state in the 18th and early 19th centuries, and its architecture from this time reflects a high degree of sophistication and variety. In addition to Jefferson, architects from outside the region--Haviland, Parris, Walter, Lafever, Renwick, and Davis--were called in to design some of the state's most impressive structures. As the first comprehensive survey of Virginia's antebellum architecture, this volume is a welcome arrival. Lane has put together an immensely readable account, chronologically organized and illustrated with a wide range of historical photographs, architects' renderings, and floor plans. The first of a seven-part series on architecture of the Old South, this volume is highly recommended.-- H. Ward Jandl, National Park Service, Washington, D.C.
