Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina, 2013. 1st Edition. Quarto. Fine / Fine. Item #16757
A GORGEOUS photo-documentary on the architectural heritage of the historic residential structures of the Chesapeake region, signed by six of the contributors, including Edward Chappell, the renowned historical architect and researcher, from whose library this volume comes.
Chappell made Williamsburg, Virginia his home since 1980 when he was hired to rebuild and direct the Architectural Research Department at Colonial Williamsburg. He retired in 2016, by then holder of an endowed chair, the Shirley and Richard Roberts Director of Architectural and Archaeological Research. His education and early work experience were preparation for this career appointment and for a wide variety of special projects in Virginia, Annapolis, Charleston, Jamaica, Bermuda, Antigua, and elsewhere. Taken together, they earned his reputation as a leading preservationist and historian of early Atlantic-world architecture.
