Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In conjunction with Eidlitz's book, "The Nature and Function of Art . . ." this biography is essential reading for the student of American architectural history. It provides a superlative biography of the person and works of one of the seminal figures in nineteenth-century American architecture.
