Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Anyone who has visited New Orleans has more than likely visited some of the homes and mansions erected during the neoclassical period. Those who have had such experiences will want to peruse this lavishly illustrated volume, which not only delivers a history and chronology of the architecture of the city but examines over two dozen homes that are open to the public via tours of private visitation. After a brief history of the city, Mitchell, an architectural historian, and Lockhart, the photographer for the State of Georgia Office of Historic Preservation, guide the reader both textually and visually through the various districts of the city to examine in detail the exteriors and interiors of homes that have been restored to their original form and classical beauty. Public and academic libraries will seriously want to consider this book for their architecture collections.-- Bruce Alan Hanson, Wayzata East J . H.S. Lib., Minn.
