The enigmatic, polyglot Hypnerotomachia Poliphili -- the inspiration for the bestselling novel The Rule of Four -- has fascinated architects and historians since its publication in 1499. Part fictional narrative and part scholarly treatise, richly illustrated with wood engravings, the book is an extreme case of erotic furor, aimed at everything -- especially architecture -- that the protagonist, Poliphilo, encounters in his quest for his beloved, Polia. Among the instances of the book's manifesto-like character is Polia's tirade defending the right of women to express their own sexuality, p... View more info

Like the pivotal clue in a Conan Doyle story, the American porch hides itself in plain sight. But it is a national treasure, one that has long awaited the attention of a fine writer like Michael Dolan. In careful, spirited prose, Dolan relates the colorful and surprising history of the porch, starting with the ancient Greeks.George Washington makes his appearance, as Dolan describes how the amateur architect and nation builder may have happened upon a porch in Barbados and brought the concept back to Mount Vernon. But the story is far older and more complex than that, and since those days t... View more info

A rich, fascinating saga of the most influential, far-reaching architectural firm of their time and of the dazzling triumvirate--Charles McKim, William Mead, and Stanford White--who came together, bound by the notion that architecture could help shape a nation in transition. They helped to refine America's idea of beauty, elevated its architectural practice, and set the standard on the world's stage. Their world and times were those of Edith Wharton and Henry James, though both writers and their society shunned the architects as being much too much about new money. They brought together th...

The Roaring Twenties in New York was a time of exuberant ambition, free-flowing optimism, an explosion of artistic expression in the age of Prohibition. New York was the city that embodied the spirit and strength of a newly powerful America. In 1924, in the vibrant heart of Manhattan, a fierce rivalry was born. Two architects, William Van Alen and Craig Severance (former friends and successful partners, but now bitter adversaries), set out to imprint their individual marks on the greatest canvas in the world--the rapidly evolving skyline of New York City. Each man desired to build the city... View more info

"Hunt tells this complex, epic story with dazzling clarity and organizational brilliance . . . I know nothing equaling its scope and ambition."--Phillip Lopate, Los Angeles TimesEver since Charles Dickens first described Coketown in Hard Times, the nineteenth-century city has connoted deprivation, pollution, and criminality. Yet, as historian Tristram Hunt argues in this powerful new history, the Coketowns born of the Industrial Revolution were canvasas for ambitious urban innovators who would influence the shape of cities for generations.

Condition: GOOD CONDITION


From "one of our most original, accessible, and stimulating writers on architecture" (Library Journal) comes a captivating account of the life and work of Andrea Palladio, the father of domestic architecture. Once, architectural genius was reserved for temples and palaces, not private houses. But with his beautiful, perfectly proportioned villas, Andrea Palladio changed design forever. His 1570 architectural treatise was studied by Thomas Jefferson and Inigo Jones and proved critical to the design of Monticello and the White House. And his influence can still be seen today--in grand porches an... View more info

In a brilliant collaboration between writer and subject, the bestselling author of "Home" and "City Life" illuminates Frederick Law Olmsted's role as a major cultural figure and a man at the epicenter of nineteenth-century American history. We know Olmsted through the physical legacy of his stunning landscapes -- among them, New York's Central Park, California's Stanford University campus, Boston's Back Bay Fens, Illinois's Riverside community, Asheville's Biltmore Estate, and Louisville's park system. He was a landscape architect before that profession was founded, designed the first lar... View more info
