Synopsis: After a dozen years, a newly revised and enlarged edition brings a Portsmouth classic back in print! A rare survivor of three centuries of urban change, with new emphasis on preservation and revitalization, Portsmouth, NH, is recognized today as one of the architectural treasures of New England. The evolution of its many neighborhoods, house types, building technologies, and related design ideas are all found in Building Portsmouth. Elaborate colonial and federal mansions, smaller dwellings of mariners and artisans, handsome Victorian suburbs, and housing for industrial workers are all documented here as part of the city's built fabric. Illustrated with both modern and historic photographs, maps and drawings, Building Portsmouth began in 1992 as a group project to bring the accumulated knowledge of many scholars under the editorial eye of architectural historian Richard M. Candee. This new and revised second edition captures research done in the intervening decade and corrects old errors. The book is redesigned to help all who are interested in how Portsmouth grew and changed to make connections with their city. It contains new information about historic homes in the South End, along South Street and out New Castle Avenue, expands on the rebuilding of the brick urban core and on new discoveries about the Edwardian summer colony along Little Harbor Road. Like the first edition, it will become a key to all those buying or restoring a building anywhere in the city.
