This is positively one of the best books that my husband and I have recently purchased! The photographs are really stunning, and well thought out. Recommended for all of those who love history and the wonderful houses that go with it. An educational tour of America's
first homes and a look at some outstanding early antiques.

Another nicely done book of the type for which the publisher has become known. Beautifully photographed and knowledgeably described, this is a great old house tour with some of the lesser known examples.

This book is absolutely beautiful. It is full of wonderful photographs and great historic information on New England houses and architecture. I have been to some of the places they mention and looking at this book makes me feel that I am there once again. If you like perod architecture, home design or even photograhy this book is well worth adding to your library.
