Houses of the Berkshires
"HOUSES OF THE BERKSHIRES, 1870-1930, chronicles the distinctive social and literary colony of Lenox and Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Illustrated with over 300 photographs and floor plans, the volume surveys 37 of the great country houses, including Naumkeag, Wheatleigh, Tanglewood, Blantyre, and the Mount.
This revised, expanded edition reflects new research since the original publication in 2006. With two additional chapters and almost two dozen new photographs, HOUSES OF THE BERKSHIRES is an informative architectural history of the great American resort, an elegant photographic tour of some of the region's most beautiful houses, and an unmatched chronicle of this distinctive social, artistic, and literary colony and now vanished way of life."
324 pages of beautiful Berkshire history for your coffee table or library, an excellent gift!
