Description
Best known in the Boston area, H. Langford Warren (18571917) was an important link in the chain of individuals who contributed to the architectural practice, theories of design, and the teaching of architectural history in the United States at the turn of the 20th century. He first worked under the renowned architect Henry Hobson Richardson before establishing his own practice, developing Harvard University's architectural curriculum, and helping to found Boston's Society of Arts and Crafts. Following the ideals of John Ruskin, William Morris, and later leaders of the English Arts and Crafts movement, Warren and his architect-colleagues promoted a close collaboration with the craftsmen who enhanced their buildings. With drawings, plans, and photos throughout, Maureen Meister's book examines the complexity of this architecture by exploring the eclectic historicism of Warren.

"A significant contribution to a recent body of literature examining the more conservative elements of the Arts and Crafts movement and its close cousin, the Colonial Revival. Meister has mined a rich vein of archival material to produce a clear, readable monograph that elucidates Warren's restrained, English-inspired architecture."Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians
