Overview

Early Victorian by Constance M. Greiff

This book provides a compact guide to the era, its designers, key building types, furnishings, details, and materials inside and out--complete with a timeline and lists of notable landmarks and preservation societies.

Victorian is not one style but many. All of them feature a picturesque and romantic exuberance that has charmed observers since the mid-19th century. This look at the early Victorian period shows how to recognize some of the favorite styles within it: the stately Italianate, recalling Tuscan hill towns; the dramatic Second Empire, drawn from the reign of Napoleon III; the exotic Egyptian Revival, a perfect choice for monuments as well as mausoleums. Houses, main streets, city halls, railroad stations--all were infused with the Victorian spirit.
