Accomplished in all departments of art--Hammatt Billings of Boston, 1818-1874 by James F O'Gorman( )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,949 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( )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 1,793 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
Gervase Wheeler : a British architect in America, 1847-1860 by Renée Tribert( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gervase Wheeler was an English-born architect who designed such important American works as the Henry Boody House in Brunswick, Maine; the Patrick Barry House in Rochester, New York; and the chapels at Bowdoin and Williams colleges. But he was perhaps best known as the author of two influential architecture books, Rural Homes (1851) and Homes for the People (1855). Yet Wheeler has remained a little known, enigmatic figure. Renee Tribert and James F. O'Gorman's study sheds new light on the course of Wheeler's career in the states, and brings crucial issues to the fore--the international movement of ideas, the development of the American architectural profession, the influence of architectural publications on popular taste, and social history as expressed in the changing nature of the American house. Wheeler's career is traced chronologically and geographically and the book is lavishly illustrated with over fifty images, including building plans and historical photographs

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."--Jacket

The makers of Trinity Church in the city of Boston( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 242 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."--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 198 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."--Jacket
