From the Book Cover

Originally published in 1878, this design compendium offered prospective home-owners a look at some possibilities for the house of their dreams. Compiled by a leading nineteenth-century architectural firm from a variety of existing works, this now-rare collection of designs features a remarkable range of modestly priced structures: suburban houses, villas, seaside and campground cottages, homsteads, and many other buildings. In addition to private homes, the architectural proposals include store fronts, churches, and other public buildings.

Designs are presented in handsome drawings of perspective views and elevations, some of which include floor plans. Suggestions for exterior remodeling feature meticulously detailed before-and-after views; designs for interior decor include sideboards, newel posts, and entire suites of furniture.

The result is an authentic treasury of Victorian design, sure to intrigue historians of architecture, home restorers, preservationists, and anyone who delights in the felicities of the American Victorian style.
