COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG: Its Buildings & Gardens

Email this review


We are including this despite its late arrival, because it seems to fill a real need for a book that combines history, description, photographs- and a sense of being brought in on the know of how the Williamsburg restoration was achieved. The text records the adventure of the restoration, the use of old records and documents and plans, the choice of materials, the decisions as to what should be restored, and its role to present to today's Americans the facsimile of one almost perfect phase of that part of colonial America which was the cradle of liberty. A fine piece of bookmaking which serves its purpose both as guidebook and pleasant recall.
