Product Overview

In "Antique Houses of Gloucester," author Prudence Paine Fish delivers a masterful survey of Gloucester's most compelling, puzzling and captivating old homes while simultaneously providing an entertaining primer on New England's colonial and nineteenth-century architecture. Stumped by the differences between Georgian and Federal ornamentation? Wondering how to identify an authentic Cape Ann cottage? Intrigued by Indian shutters, widow's walks, Tory chimneys and other such exotically named decorative motifs? Fish unravels these mysteries and misnomers. With a Fact and Fiction section debunking various myths and misconceptions, a comprehensive glossary of terms and even an excursion into the cutting edge field of dendrochronology, "Antique Houses of Gloucester" offers everything the reader needs to become an armchair expert on Gloucester's historic residences and New England's classic building styles.
