Manhattan Style Hardcover – November, 1990
From Library Journal
This is a historical survey of the interior design profession as it evolved in New York after the publication of Edith Wharton and Ogden Codman Jr.'s The Decoration of Houses in 1897. Wharton and Codman rejected the Victorian clutter popular at the time and inspired a generation of designers who espoused elegant, functional style and who were years ahead of their time. Historical and modern photographs of apartments and townhouses along with well-written biographical sketches of the designers make this a valuable addition to the literature of interior design. Highly recommended for general and decorative arts collections.
