Overview


This magnificent reproduction of a rare sourcebook, originally designed for prospective homeowners, designers, and builders of the early-Victorian era includes twenty-one designs for private residences. First published more than a century-and-a-half ago (and highly reflective of Victorian eclecticism), the models range from a charming eight-room house in the English style for $1,025 to a spacious French villa, complete with a wraparound veranda, ten bedrooms, and a walk-in china closet—for $10,441! Additional homes include—among others—a cozy, Swiss-styled chalet; a Tudor cottage; splendid residences with Indian and Egyptian architectural accents; and a two-story home with Anglo-Grecian elements. All designs are accompanied by landscaping layouts, floor plans, elevations, and detailed cost estimates for materials and labor.
Of value to students of architectural history, home restorers, preservationists and builders, this richly illustrated book will be a welcome addition to the libraries of readers interested in period architecture.
