This is one of the classic books of American architectural history. Scully introduced his unique nomenclature in this book and defended his interpretation of late-nineteenth-century American architectural developments. Although one can argue, based on nomenclature of the period in question, that such a dichotomy of styles did not exist until Mr. Scully invented them, his thesis is interesting, at worst, and compelling, at best.

This is a classic that should be in the library of every person with a serious interest in late nineteenth-century American architecture.
loved it
Book is very detailed about how the "Cottages" of the Victorian era were built.
Most were set around the United States and works its way to the geat modernistic
architecture of the magnificent Frank Lloyd Wright.
An historical treasure, this book, The Shingle and the Stick Style: form Richardson to the Orgins of Wright, by Vincent Scully is a chest of Architectual masterpieces. Detailed descriptions, interior and exterior photos, and floor plans make this book a wealth of knowledge for anyone interested in Architecture. The book is laid out as most contempory Architecture books. It describes the perticular building, then has the number that corralates to the photo. There are so many historical photographs in this book, and it is all well explained. It takes you step though step from the beginning of the stick stlye to the evoloution to the shingle to the metamorphis of Wright. Ths book is so detailed it even has the architectual sketches of many houses build in Manchester-by-the-Sea at Cape Ann, Mass. For the price this book is a definate buy!
