Overview

Ever since Charleston first gained a reputation as a bastion of southern living in a modern metropolitan setting, its style and grace have been clear to all visitors to this unique city. Charleston's roots go all the way back to its days as a powerful colonial port, and Charleston Past and Present represents the finest residences from the early seventeenth century to more modern times, as well as their histories.

This newly formatted edition maps the city's charm through its exquisite and sometimes eccentric architecture, decorative arts, and garden designs, featuring full color photography by John Blais of nineteen southern homes and estates. With a delightful foreword by acclaimed novelist Josephine Humphreys, it is the essential coffee-table book for the thousands who visit Charleston each year.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
What at first looks like a city booster s tour book of historic Charleston, this condensed version of Charleston Style: Past and Present holds high ambitions, namely capturing something of the grand decrepitude and dark complexity of Southern literature in the architecture and interior decorating of this charming port city. In brief profiles of local architectural prizes, with styles ranging from the Greek Revival to the Oriental, Sully paints a portrait of European, Caribbean and Asian influences. Steeped in memory and Old World manners, Charleston appears as a self-aware, cosmopolitan, vaguely haunted locale, caught between a sensual present and a seductive, perhaps decadent, past. Although the photos by Blais tend towards the antiseptic, Sully s text is richly voiced, and she enthusiastically educates the reader on the finer points of Charlestonian native childhood. Full of nostalgia, modesty and a bit of pretension, this book reveals Charleston s unique brand of regional sophistication, and the graceful style that it has cultivated as its own. (Jan.)
