Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great Houses of New England has an astonishing number of spelling and grammar mistakes, often several on each page. Run-on sentences and fragments are plentiful, and one chapter actually ends in the middle of a word. This is a pity, because the author seems to know what he is talking about. There are no footnotes, however, making this a coffee table book rather than a scholarly one.

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!

The description of this book is wrong. The Judge Corwin home in Salem, MA. aka The Witch House is not in this book even though the description
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."
