About this title:

Synopsis:

A view of the resort and leisure architecture of one of the most popular and prolific firms of the Gilded Age.

Robert Swain Peabody and John Goddard Stearns Jr. led one of the most popular and prolific architectural design firms in the Northeast, securing more than one thousand commissions and building a vast and vibrant repertoire, from warehouses and town houses to retail stores, banks, schools, railroad stations, libraries, playhouses, and country houses.

This survey is the first of its kind to focus on the firm’s country house commissions, offering a fascinating glimpse into the social and economic vitality that epitomized the era―one that gave rise to a robust clientele for resort architecture and second homes. Indeed, the economic developments of the time spurred a vast market for houses of recreation and leisure-time buildings, including casinos, boathouses, stables, gentlemen’s farms, and cottages, all of which Peabody & Stearns had a leading role in creating. With this book, Annie Robinson establishes Peabody & Stearns as a significant contributor to the development of an American architecture in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

This comprehensive catalog showcases more than eighty of the firm’s designs, from Pierre Lorillard’s The Breakers in Newport, Rhode Island, to William Forbes’s cottage on Cape Cod, James Ford Rhodes’s Ravenscleft in Maine, and Charles William Eliot’s Sunshine in Northeast Harbor, Maine. While the bulk of the firm’s commissions were located in New England, notable works in the Middle Atlantic states and in the South and the West are also covered. Containing over two hundred illustrations, archival photographs, plans, and drawings, Peabody & Stearns tells the little-known story of the two men who formed a lasting architectural partnership, and displays the impressive collection of the homes across the country on which they left their imprint.
250 b/w & 25 color illustrations

Book Description W. W. Norton & Company, New York / London, 2010. Hardcover. Rust paper boards, color illus. and olive dust jacket and mylar cover; 247 pp., BW and color illus. Considers the work of the Boston-based architectural firm of Peabody & Stearns. "Although overshadowed in the architectural canon by some of its more celebrated contemporaries -- such as H. H. Richardson; McKim, Mead & White; Bruce Price; and John Calvin Stevens -- Peabody & Stearns was a major player, for both the number and the quality of its designs and also for its role as training ground for young architects. Reaching its pinnacle at the turn of the nineteenth century, the firm also had great success in designing some of the Northeast's most noteworthy country homes and seaside cottages so emblematic of the Gilded Age." (dj) Addresses individual properties geographically and in detail. Fun for architextural browsing. G+ (Ex-art library, with labels on dj spine and front cover; i.d. marks on book block edges and outermost pages; page edges may be tanning lightly; otherwise crisp and clean.).
