9780070361201: The Architecture of Historic Nantucket

Clay Lancaster (30 March 1917 - 25 December 2000), was an authority on American architecture, an orientalist, and an influential advocate of historical preservation. According to the New York Times, Lancaster's 1961 study of the architecture of Brooklyn Heights "proved to be one of the earliest and loudest shots in the historic preservation struggle in New York City." Lancaster's style received high praise. Alan Priest, former curator of Far Eastern Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art noted in his introduction to The Japanese Influence in America that "the prose is most agreeable to read and the subject matter so interesting that one is led to read almost as if it were a historical novel." The poet Marianne Moore, introducing Lancaster's Prospect Park Handbook (1967), writes: "his pages are art."
