About This Item: 
The text not only discusses the houses' architectural innovations and design elements but also profiles the architects and their clients The featured houses were built by many of the country's leading architects - from Alexander Jackson Davis, Richard Morris Hunt, Henry Hobson Richardson, and McKim, Mead and White to Frank Lloyd Wright, the Greene brothers, and Walter Gropius - and owned by some of its most celebrated citizens, including Thomas Jefferson, Mark Twain, Thomas Edison, Jay Gould, the Guggenheims, the Phippses, and the Vanderbilts As a result, the book is as much a cultural history as it is an architectural study The authors also include an informative discussion of each style as it can be seen in vernacular versions around the country
