Asher's (1773-1845) books, enormously popular when first published, were highly influential in disseminating the language of the Greek Revival. Both works were originally published by B.B. Mussey (Boston), the first in 1839, and the second in 1845, as Architect or Complete Builder's Guide. They are reprinted here with an introduction by Thomas Gordon Smith (architecture, U. of Notre Dame). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
