Court house a photographic document. Edited by Richard Pare. Conceived and directed by Phyllis Lambert.
New York, Horizon Press 1978.
Folio. 255 + (1)pp, 359 photo ills (some colour). Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. Roderick Gradidge’s copy.
The most authoritative historical, architectural, and photographic study of the American court house as a building type. It is also especially notable for the fact that the photographs that illustrate it were all specially commissioned from contemporary photographers and are thus measurably superior in aesthetic quality to those in other architectural books of this nature and date.
