Overview


James Early’s new book is the first comprehensive account of Spanish architecture and urbanism in the United States. Lavishly illustrated, this encyclopedic volume covers the whole of the old Spanish borderlands—Florida, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California—and examines structures ranging from a great stone fort in St. Augustine to the buildings which faced the plaza in the French Quarter of New Orleans to the pueblo-style churches of New Mexico and mason-designed stone churches of Texas, Arizona, and California. Early provides not only meticulously researched information on the architectural heritage of the borderlands, but also provides its political, social, and economic context in the period from when urbanism began with a town on what became the Georgia coast in 1526 up to 1846 when American troops took over Santa Fe and Los Angeles.
