Old World Inspiration for American Architecture Hardback


This is the classic resource for authentic Mediterranean and Spanish architecture, compiled in 1929 by the pioneer architect of its revival style.

Its 144 plates display many country and city dwellings, interiors as well as exteriors, and architectural, garden, and ironwork details.

Sections focus on roofs, street scenes, cornices and chimneys.

There are Old World doorways, window grilles, balconies, and cornices.

Its patios, fountains, and gates can provide inspiration for today's builders seeking to create authentic landscape design.

Many of the photographic views are identified with the town name and specific features they clearly display.
