Roger Moss's new book on the historic house museums in greater Philadelphia fills a void that has existed for a long time. This new book spotlights many of the smaller house museums in groupings meant to encourage touring. While not an architectural guide, the design of the buildings is given equal emphasis with descriptions of the history and collections. There are many interesting themes that are independent of specific buildings.

I am not generally inclined to acquiring coffee table books about standard house museums of particular cities, but in this case I made an exception because Roger Moss is one of my favorite authors. I was not disappointed. My knowledge of Philadelphia and its architecture is adequate and this book revealed a wealth of historic houses of which I had been unaware. The text was interesting and pithy, allowing a surprisingly large number of houses to be covered with each given about four pages. The photography was excellent. I highly recommend this book for anyone with an interest in historic houses, especially of Philadelphia. If you are like myself, you may be in for some very pleasant surprises.

I bought this for my wife as I'd run out of ideas for her birthday, which is frustratingly close to Christmas.
She likes houses and interiors, which baffles me as ours looks like a wreck mostly. I think she opened it once but it'll end up stacked on the shelf with all the others which rotate to our coffee table. We believe that having lots of art, architecture and interiors books make us appear sophisticated to visitors. This is in stark contrast to our actual life which is spent slouched in front of the TV, eating pizza and candy and watching shows about ducks doing tricks on skateboards.
It's a book, it could be great and it looks pretty.

A very interesting book about the famous homes of Philadelphia. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs. A feast to our eyes!

I gave my copy away, so I was replacing it. This book is a must for historic houses of Philadelphia. It gets one to go visit them.
I have more on my list thanks to this wonderful book.
