A lovely copy, from the personal library of world-renowned Architectural Historian and Colonial Williamsburg Foundation leader, Edward Chappell, with his signature.

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.

Square tight binding. Clean interior. Dust jacket Fine. Presents handsomely in archival mylar.

A lively and entertaining work that would be an interesting addition any quality Architecture collection.
