84 GARDINER, STEPHEN. Le Corbusier.
The Viking Press, New York: 1975. 0670019852 / 9780670019854 Modern Masters Series. s Softcover. Good condition. 
Lw Corbusier, considered by many to be the geatest architect of the twentieth century, has remained in a number of ways an enigma. His work - thanks not only to the buildings themselves but to his books and writings about architecture - has been deeply influential for several generations, yet much of his influence is misapplied and misappropriated. In an eloquent and enthusiastic introduction to the master's work, Stephen Gardner elucidates the elements that gave Le Corbusier's buildings such originality and power. Includes an Index.

85 GARVIN, JAMES L. A Building History Of Northern New England.
University Press of New England, Hanover: 2001. 1584650990 / 9781584650997 s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The first and only full-scale technical and stylistic analysis of 200 years of architectural evolution in northern New England. This is a book about understanding old buildings. In an era in which much of the US landscape has been littered by unimaginative, prefabricated structures, James L. Garvin tells owners and would-be owners of old buildings in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont what they need to know before they begin the restoration process. In wonderfully lucid prose, Garvin describes the production of the materials from which the buildings of northern New England were built, outlines the stylistic evolution of the region's structures from the early 1700s to World War II, and offers guidelines for dating old buildings. Focusing on domestic architecture, but including examples of public, commercial, religious, and industrial buildings, he offers custodians of buildings an understanding of the technologies embodied in these structures, answers questions about stylistic changes, and allows the architecture of northern New England to be understood for the first time with a technical depth that is already available for buildings in better-studied parts of the United States. Written for both homeowners and those responsible for public and museum structures, this volume provides an understanding of the region's building history even as it specifically answers questions that most often perplex architects and preservationists. By offering all custodians of northern New England buildings a richer understanding of architectural style and structure, the book encourages the use of appropriate methods and materials in building conservation and rehabilitation. Generously illustrated throughout, the book is also an essential resource for anyone who is interested in American and New England architecture and the building trades, and for anyone who has ever wondered about the secrets and stories of old buildings. Received New Hampshire Preservation Alliance award in 2001. James L. Garvin has served as the State Architectural Historian, New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources, since 1987. His familiarity with the region's buildings derives from over 20 years of curatorship, from writing or editing almost 200 National Register nominations, and from preparing over 150 reports on historic buildings. He has supervised the restoration of several 18th-century structures.

Yale University Press, New Haven: 1978. 0300022735 / 9780300022735 h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Reading copy. 
"I am not sure that Mr. Girouard convinces me that the taming of the aristocracy and upper classes by Christianity affected their relations with their architects to a great extent. The architect had his way because the sheer problem of organizing all the variables in the building was beyond the competence of an amateur. But he was written a masterly book." - Noel Annan, New York Review of Books
