3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Revered as the father of historic preservation in the United States, architect James Marston Fitch was hailed by the New York Times at the time of his death in 2000 as "an architect whose writings and teachings helped transform historic preservation from a dilettante's pastime into a vigorous, broadly based cultural movement." In this anthology of his writings, spanning over sixty years of his professional career, Fitch's incisive ideas and observations on a range of subjects are brought to light in a single, readable volume. Whether a lament of the loss of functionalism in the wake of modernism, a celebration of the architectural perfection embodied in the University of Virginia campus, or an appeal to architects to heed factors of climate and environment in their designs, Fitch's essays are both provocative and pragmatic and always deeply rooted in the human element. In the face of contemporary concerns such as suburban sprawl, energy expenditure, and environmental degradation, Fitch's writings resonate today more than ever."--Publisher's website

The Baltimore rowhouse by Mary Ellen Hayward( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Italian and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Baltimore Rowhouse tells the 200-year story of this building type. It chronicles the evolution of the rowhouse from its origins as speculative housing for laborers and merchants in the 1790s and for newly arrived immigrants after 1850, through its reclamation and renovation by urban pioneers with local government subsidies beginning in the 1970s. Today, the Baltimore rowhouse is of interest for stylistic reference and as a local building genre. It is also an important exemplar of planning for urban communities nationwide
