"The definitive treatise on our local [New England] late-19th-century architecture." ?Fine Homebuilding

"Scully writes with a compelling enthusiasm which is challenging. . . . The great contribution of this book is the attention which it focuses on a form of American architecture from which we have been averting our eyes for about 40 years, now."?Progressive Architecture

"The last section of the book, on the origins and early development of Frank Lloyd Wright, is one of Scully's best. This chapter . . . shows a mature understanding and a just handling of the academic tradition and of the early work of one of America's greatest architects."?Art Bulletin

"Scully's research is exhaustive, his scholarship impeccable. His illustrations alone form a gold mine of information on the period."?Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

The original edition won the 1957 Charles Rufus Morey Book Award of the College Art Association.
