About this title

Review:

Frank McCall is a contemporary American architect described by author William Mitchell as "the reigning master of traditional architecture in Georgia." McCall is most noted for large and expensive domestic works, often in a classicizing style, but always in a style accommodating the tastes of his clients. His architecture is displayed in this book in a work-by-work format in which excellent exterior and interior color photographs accompany a brief statement describing the building. Supplementing the body of the book are two appendices; one lists McCall's work. The second appendix, "The Library of William Frank McCall, Jr., " seems unnecessary as it lists fairly standard sources of early American and Southern architecture. Sources consulted and an index of illustrated jobs complete the book. Whether or not McCall has distinction as an architect remains to be assessed in a more critical manner than this very flattering volume attempts. The Architecture of Vm. Frank McCall, Jr., FAIA does stand as a valuable and worthwhile documentation of traditional architecture in the South. -- From Independent Publisher

Store Description

Member: Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, Southern New England Antiquarian Booksellers. "One of the finest in N.E. (&) the premier used book shop on Cape Cod." - Used Book Lover's Guide. We are a general used and rare book shop with about 70,000 volumes. Located half way between Falmouth and Hyannis (4632 Falmouth Rd, Rte 28), we are named in honor of the famous colonial era printer and philanthropist, founder (1812) of the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester. We started in Worcester in 1969, and moved to the Cape in 1990. Impressed with architectural craftmanship, in Worcester we were stewards and renewers of a decorative Queen Anne Victorian. Here on the Cape we take care of the newest (1860) Crocker family home in the village of Cotuit, part of the town of Barnstable: a tall peaked Italianate Victorian now painted pink and four other colors. The owner's training has included work in four libraries and apprenticeship with bookseller Irving Ephraim (1908-1989) of Worcester who began his own career during the depression. Able assistants have always been and known the meaning of 'book people.' Remembering with fondness Mr. E. and the enormous influence of our home town librarians, we try to continue their tradition of service. Inquiries and orders gratefully received. 508-428-2752. isthomas@aol.com. www.isaiahthomasbooks.com.Please visit us in our open shop on Cape Cod. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-5.
