Interest in Neoclassicism, both as a subject of study and in the design of interiors, has undergone a resurgence in the last decade. Readers of the magazine Antiques will recognize the name of the author, a former publisher and editor in chief, as well as the 180 lush color photographs, which have been culled from articles featured in the magazine over the years. The photographs capture the interiors and exteriors of outstanding historic houses dating from 1780 to 1830 and located along the Eastern seaboard. Accompanying the photos is helpful commentary on this rich era of American social, political, architectural, and decorative arts history. An index of the structures illustrated in the volume is included. This handsome coffee-table offering will attract lay readers with a general interest in American antiques and traditional decorating tastes.
