More About Great Houses of the South by Laurie Ossman; Steven Brooke
 
 
 
Overview
An exquisitely photographed collection of the great houses and mansions of the South.
In the tradition of Rizzoli s "Historic Houses of the Hudson Valley" and "Great Houses of New England," "Great Houses of the South" features a stunning array of newly photographed homes that range over three centuries and are distinctive examples of the architecture of the region. While in popular imagination the "Southern Style" is embodied in the classic Southern plantation house with its Greek Revival detailing its stately white columns, wide porch, and symmetrical shape the houses themselves are much more various and engaging, as shown in this important volume. From stately Stanton Hall of Natchez, Mississippi, one of the most magnificent and palatial residences of antebellum America; to Longue Vue House and Gardens of New Orleans, the luxurious Classical Revival style home of Edgar and Edith Stern; to the fabled Biltmore of Asheville, North Carolina, the opulent French Renaissance inspired chateau and Gilded Age estate of George Washington Vanderbilt, this lavish volume is comprehensive in scope and a landmark work of enduring interest to homeowners, architects, architecture historians, and all those who love fine architecture."
