1 The Architecture of Baltimore: A Pictorial History Howland, Richard H.; Spencer, Eleanor P.
The John Hopkins Press 1953 Hard Copy Very Good+ Good 4to - over 9" - 12" tall Inscribed By Author
The John Hopkins Press, 1953. Presentation copy inscribed by author on front flyleaf as follows: "For David and Helen Robinson, with warm greetings from one of the authors, and a deep sense of appreciation for their kindnesses when he first came to Baltimore, as well as helping him to learn about it and love it. [signed] Dick Howland March 1953". Book is in Very Good+ condition: spine lightly cocked; lightly faded on spine; binding is tight, and pages are clean. Dust jacket is in Good condition: chips, tears and creasing on edges and folds; now in mylar-type protective cover. From the dust jacket: Beginning with a consideration of Baltimore's early Georgian tradition, the authors continue with a thorough examination of the Classical revival of the early nineteenth century. Through illustraiton and story they trace the great expansion of the ciyt during this period -- and expansion which brought about an equally great production of architectural masterpieces by such famous designers as Maxzimilien Godefroy, Benjamin Latrobe, and Robert Mills. This is followed by a careful appraisal of the later ninteenth-century architecture with its melange of styles ranging from the Gothic Revival to the newer eclecticism of Richard upjohn and Stanford White. New full-page photographs, taken especially for this volume, illustrate superbly such architectural landmarks as Homewood House, built by Charles Carroll, Jr., Latrobe's Roman Catholic Cathedral, and the Ross Winans House designed by Stanford White. Here is an exciting historic record of the building of a city -- a book which all lovers of Americana will treasure."
