1 Lancaster, Robert A. ; Jr. HISTORIC VIRGINIA HOMES AND CHURCHES
Philadelphia J. B. Lippincott Co. 1915 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ 
xviii, 527 pages; Clean and tight in original green cloth binding with decorative image of a hme on front cover in red, whote and black. A limited edition from which the type has been distributed. Includes 316 illustrations. OCLC: 11449821 A beautiful example of this well design and handsomely produced book on the historical architecture of Virginia. "Mr. Lancaster's work is perhaps the most complete compilation of its kind in any one district ... There are 317 illustrations, in all cases chosen with reference to the earliest possible form of the buildings listed. Therefore illustrations appear of structures no longer existing and of many others now hardly recognizable because of alterations and well-meaning "restorations." Because of his care in bringing together his collection and especially because of the length of time he has ... devted to this seemingly ungratifying task, Mr. Lancaster has succeeded in providing us with an exceptionally useful volume." [Architectural Record, Vol. 40]; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
