Accomplished in all departments of art--Hammatt Billings of Boston, 1818-1874 by James F O'Gorman ( )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Billings worked for many private patrons, he was also very much a public artist, giving visible form to the popular celebrations of his era. He designed fireworks displays for the Boston Common, decorated buildings in times of public celebration and mourning, laid out plans for a variety of fairs and festivals, and created floats for parades
Henry Austin in every variety of architectural style by James F O'Gorman ( )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry Austin's (1804-1891) works receive consideration in books on nineteenth-century architecture, yet no book has focused scholarly attention on his primary achievements in New Haven, Connecticut, in Portland, Maine, and elsewhere. Austin was most active during the antebellum era, designing exotic buildings that have captured the imaginations of many for decades. James F. O'Gorman deftly documents Austin's work during the 1840s and '50s, the time when Austin was most productive and creative, and for which a wealth of material exists. The book is organized according to various building types: domestic, ecclesiastic, public, and commercial. O'Gorman helps to clarify what buildings should be attributed to the architect and comments on the various styles that went into his eclectic designs. Henry Austin is lavishly illustrated with 132 illustrations, including 32 in full color. Three extensive appendices provide valuable information on Austin's books, drawings, and his office

Living architecture : a biography of H.H. Richardson by James F O'Gorman ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Richly detailed, thoughtfully organized, and brilliantly formed, Richardson's architecture originated a series of new building types for America's emerging social pattern, including cosmopolitan corporate icons for downtown and natural residential forms for the suburbs and the country. Trinity Church, the Marshall Field Wholesale Store in Chicago, the Allegheny County Courthouse and Jail in Pittsburgh, academic buildings at Harvard, and elegant private homes for such cultural and business elites as the Adamses, Hayses, and Ameses - these and other buildings defined Richardson's aesthetic and helped establish a new American architecture

"Since the Renaissance books and drawings have been a primary means of communication among architects and their colleagues and clients. In this volume, twelve historians explore the use of books by architects in America in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, a period when the profession of architecture was first emerging in the United States." "The essays in this volume range from studies of architectural publications available in the colonies to the appearance of American architectural incunabula to the revolution in architectural publishing that occurred in the 1830s and 1840s."--BOOK JACKET

The makers of Trinity Church in the city of Boston ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since its dedication in 1877, Trinity Church on Copley Square in Boston has been widely regarded as one of the most important and successful monuments of American architecture. It has long been hailed as the cornerstone of the career of America's first celebrity architect, H. H. Richardson. But architecture is not solely the expression of individual genius. Buildings result from collaboration and compromise. They are the concrete manifestations of competing needs, desires, and expectations expressed through clients, building committees, designers, bankers, engineers, builders, decorators, and others. The Makers of Trinity Church in the City of Boston recognizes and celebrates this collaborative effort."--BOOK JACKET

Connecticut valley vernacular : the vanishing landscape and architecture of the New England tobacco fields by James F O'Gorman ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"James F. O'Gorman reads through oral histories, newspaper reports, and the terse factual writing of agricultural diaries to bring to life the risks and rewards of living close to the seasons, at the mercy of rainfall and sunshine. He has collected an array of vintage and newly commissioned photos of the work of growing tobacco, from de facto portraits of anonymous laborers to images of the sheds themselves, with all their ventilating doors open, welcoming the air. In this book, O'Gorman treats both the people and the sheds with the respect and admiration their precarious presence requires."--BOOK JACKET
