Philadelphia Victorian by Roger Moss (PAPERBACK)

Recounts the effort of The Athenaeum of Philadelphia to provide for itself in the 1830s and 1840s a handsome and practical building, in a good location, at a price it could afford. With great good luck The Athenaeum of Philadelphia obtained John Notman's pure expression of the Italianate Revival Style in the urban palazzo mode that would soon become the most popular style in America. The resulting building is today hailed as a seminal structure in the history of American architecture and has been declared a National Historic Landmark by the Secretary of the Interior.
