About this title

Synopsis:

Offers a thorough look at the architectural details of the library

From Library Journal:

The New York Public Library is recognized as one of the finest examples of Beaux-Arts Classicism in the city. Reed's monograph contains a wealth of information about the building's design, from the majestic Corinthian portico on Fifth Avenue to the desk lamps in the Main Reading Room. Each architectural detail is lovingly photographed and labelled, providing an exhaustive record of the building's ornamentation. For Reed, however, architecture is style and form, nothing more; this is unfortunate, for little attention is paid to the building's construction or to the extensive stacks that house the majority of the library's books. Despite this shortcoming, the book should be of interest both to architectural historians and to the thousands of readers who make regular use of this unique resource. H. Ward Jandl, National Park Svce., Washington, D.C.
