AUTHOR

Parissien, Steven, Gloucester Art Press Editors

SUMMARY

The first part of this book describes the development of the Georgian style, beginning with its introduction in the early eighteenth century in Britain and the colonies. In the 1740s, metropolitan areas on America's east coast, particularly the cities of Boston, Philadelphia, Charleston, and Alexandria, were beginning to show excellent examples of Georgian architecture. In the second part of the book, a chapter is devoted to each element of the house - roofs, stonework, brick, doors and windows, fireplaces, and moldings are examined, stressing the need for today's occupants to understand the ideas, techniques, and materials employed by the original builders. This book enables the preservationist, historian, architect, carpenter, and decorator to understand the craftsmanship and context of the Georgian house.Parissien, Steven is the author of 'Georgian House in America and Britain', published 2008 under ISBN 9780847830497 and ISBN 0847830497.
