Nevertheless, the photographs are very nice, and I definitely plan to visit some of the houses featured in the book. Roderic H. Blackburn needs to get an editor!
plainly states that it is: "Great Houses of New England features a stunning array of newly photographed houses that range over four centuries and are distinctive examples of the architecture of the region from the mid-seventeenth-century New England Colonial Judge Corwin House (Witches House) in Salem, MA., and the eighteenth-century Jeremiah Lee Mansion in Marblehead, MA., to the late-nineteenth-century McKim, Mead & White Shingle-Style Isaac Bell House in Newport, R.I."
