Fine collection of photogelatine prints and floor plans of the grand houses of late Nineteenth Century America. Constructed in the "cottage" or "country seat" style, these were the houses of wealthy industrialists and succesful well-to-do famillies of the period, with parlours, balconies, unusual architectural features, high chimney stacks as well as revolutionary shallow roof lines accompanying the imposing facades. 
A large proportion of the buildings in this volume have now been demolished or highly modified, especially those in the major cities, leaving this as a unique record of these epic dwellings. 
This volume reproduces all of Sheldon's fascinating and historically important photographs and plans for a total of 97 buildings (93 houses, 4 casinos) built during the 1880s. There is a new, thoroughly accurate text by Arnold Lewis, with approximately 200 illustrations and photographs.
