Publication Date: February 9, 2012. This one features Victorian designs by George Barber. At first, I was disappointed because the first few houses were small and plain. They didn't even have indoor bathrooms.

Publication Date: February 9, 2012. However, as the book progressed the designs became larger and more elaborate. In fact, some of the designs were so gingerbreadish that I doubt many of us would want to live in them now, but they are interesting to study. I focused most of my attention on the floor plans, but the text did have a quaint charm.

Here we have another of Dover's reprints of architectural catalogs. This one features Victorian designs by George Barber. At first, I was disappointed because the first few houses were small and plain. They didn't even have indoor bathrooms. However, as the book progressed the designs became larger and more elaborate. In fact, some of the designs were so gingerbreadish that I doubt many of us would want to live in them now, but they are interesting to study. I focused most of my attention on the floor plans, but the text did have a quaint charm. For instance, throughout the book houses and features are described as "tasty." Also, the prices quoted are amazing. $1500 bought quite a nice house back in 1891. Most of the plans are for moderate size homes, with a few smaller and larger sizes mixed in. At the back of the book you will find plans for several gazebos, stables, multi family homes, and even a handful of churches. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and recommend it for all old house enthusists.

Had three years of arch. drafting. Not much information for the price.

Another one of the re-published Barber books, it holds similar praise for its high quality home designs. Derived from both Queen Anne and Colonial Revival style, Barber presents works both big and small. It certainly is a well recommended book for those interested in 19th century plan books.

I love looking at architecture of old homes because you dont see them very often anymore.....but I also use books such as these to learn how to draw houses too

The designs in this book range from very small "cottages" to very large, very nice homes. Most of them are quite ornate. As most of the home designs are almost 120 years old, they really don't work very well for today's life-style, but, add a couple of nice bathrooms and update the kitchen, and you would have an extremely nice, attractive home. This book was definitely worth the price!

Great product

We own a George Barber house. We love it, though it's been remuddled many times. Our house is in this book, and though I purchased it to provide the original floor plan for a guide to restoration, it's unusable for that purpose. Since we need a new roof, I really wanted blueprints so our reluctant roofers could see that it's not an impossible task. Not to be.

I love reading Barber's words, and his pricing estimates. Hahaha!
Great book on Victorinan Architecture.
