2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many books have been written about the California architects Greene & Greene, exploring their style and masterworks such as the Gamble House and Blacker House. The heart of this book is the work of Greene & Greene in their early years, up to 1906, the development of what we call today the "Greene & Greene style," and Pasadena's Duncan-Irwin house where it first all came together. It is the ground upon which their later grander work would be built. Bruce Smith is a specialist on the life and work of Charles and Henry Greene; his book on their architecture, Greene & Greene Masterworks (1998), was one of the New York Times Editor's Choice architectural books of the year. He is the author of The Japanese Bath, Arts and Crafts Ideals, and The Beautiful Necessity: Decorating with Arts and Crafts, as well as numerous magazine articles. He lives in the state of Washington. Alexander Vertikoff's award-winning images have been on the cover of every issue of American Bungalow magazine as well as dozens of covers and hundreds of articles in magazines such as Architectural Digest and The New York Times. His books include American Bungalow Style, Greene & Greene: Masterworks, Stickley Style, and Craftsman Style. He lives in New Mexico. -- Book Description
