Description

Originally published in 1923, this book documents the world of the famous Philadelphia-based firm which designed many outstanding residences in Mid-Atlantic and New England states. Using English, French and Italian traditions they created beautiful country estates, suburban homes, townhouses and other structures as well as superb gardens. Through these 308 photographs and measured drawings one can discover the joys that superior residential design can offer. Walter Mellor and Arthur Ingersoll Meigs started their architectural firm in Philadelphia in 1906. George Howe joined them in 1914. In 1929, George Howe left the firm to become a priest of the modern faith and won fame as an architect of the modern style.
