Those solid, sensible homes of New England have been studied for their architectural merit and as reflections of popular styles in this comprehensive picture book, now in a newly expanded second edition. A wide variety of homes of Colonial, Georgian, Federal and Victorian influence, found in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut are presented with an informative, readable text and some beautiful new photography. Floor plans are given for many of the homes, and the 245 color pictures show several angles of the buildings in addition to frontal views. Historians, architects, and home restorers will particularly enjoy this book.
