Wilson (architectural history, U. of Virginia) surveys outstanding examples in a beautifully illustrated chronological survey. Among the houses described are the Berkeley Villa in Newport, Rhode Island; Watson House in Gilmanton, New Hampshire; Pheeney House in Osterville, Massachusetts; and the Greene House in Eastern Shore, Maryland. Each house's construction, owners, architects, and architectural features are the main topics. The volume is oversize: 9.75x11.75". Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
