141 HINES, THOMAS S. Architecture And Design At The Museum Of Modern Art: The Arthur Drexler Years, 1951-1986.
Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles: 2018. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
A comprehensive look at the Museum of Modern Art's Architecture and Design Department under the leadership of the influential curator Arthur Drexler. Arthur Drexler (1925-1987) served as the curator and director of the Architecture and Design Department at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) from 1951 until 1986—the longest curatorship in the museum's history. Over four decades he conceived and oversaw trailblazing exhibitions that not only reflected but also anticipated major stylistic developments. During Drexler's tenure, MoMA played a pivotal role in examining the work and confirming the reputations of twentieth-century architects, among them Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Richard Neutra, Marcel Breuer, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Exploring unexpected subjects—from the design of automobiles to a reconstruction of a Japanese house and garden—Drexler's boundary-pushing shows promoted new ideas about architecture and design as modern arts. Drawing on rigorous archival research, Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art analyzes how MoMA became a touchstone for the practice and study of midcentury architecture.

155 HUSSEY, CHRISTOPHER. English Country Houses: Late Georgian 1800-1840.
Antique Collectors Club, Woodbridge: 1988. 1851490329 / 9781851490325 Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Very good condition. 
The forty years covered in this volume were, but for three, comprised in the reigns of George III and two of his sons, so the designation 'Late Georgian' has the advantage of being comprehensive besides in sequence with those of the two previous volumes in this series. It is probably also the most explicit for a period in which general allegiance tgo 18th-century aesthetic values - as distinct from those to be evolved in the mid 19th century - provides the only common denominator in the 'romantic' variety and 'classic' elegance that are equally characteristic of its architecture. The houses selected for illustration are considered to be outstandingly repesentaetive for their period. Includes an Index.
