314 pp, 10" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, floor plans, elevations, drawings, overlays. "For the first time, the architectural history of the town of Lexington and its t wo nationally distinguished campuses has been appraised in a scholarly fashion. This Valley of Virginia community together with Washington and Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute, presents exceptionally fine examples of American architectural styles from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century. A remarkable number of architects of national reputation, including Thomas U. Walter, Alexander Jackson Davis, and Bertram G. Goodhue, completed important work here. This new study places the noteworthy buildings and their designers within the context of the architectural development of the Valley region and assesses their role in the evolution of the nation's styles. The volume is divided into three sections: the town, Washington and Lee, and VMI. In each, an essay on the history of the development of representative styles is followed by a photographic survey of the buildings." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling, minor rubbing/soiling, small tear/crease at top edge of front panel and one or two other tiny edge tears - all archivally taped.
