75a0015Horace Trumbauer was without a doubt one of the most talented Classical Revival Architects this country has ever seen. He was  one of the least “educated” and is certainly one of the most under-appreciated. During his illustrious half-century career, he planned hundreds of residences, from modest suburban houses to sprawling country estates. In the quarter-century leading up to World War I he cemented his reputation as one of the premier Gilded Age architects, designing dozens of the country’s most exquisite and extravagant mansions for captains of industry and finance.

Description: Hard bound first printing with dust jacket. The definitive work on Trumbauer. A rare  monograph, flawless!
