"In The Cape Cod Cottage architectural historian and photographer William Morgan places this uniquely American house - a remarkable combination of necessity and tradition - in its historical context and makes a compelling argument for the reassessment of the Cape Cod cottage's place in the history of American architecture." "The Cape Cod Cottage follows the development of America's favorite house type from its earliest beginning in the colonial period, through its spread across New England, to its embrace as a suburban ideal in the twentieth century. Historical images of lost Capes augment Morgan's contemporary photographs. A tribute to a special house, The Cape Cod Cottage is an appeal to preserve the Cape's legacy and an essential document of this unique and beloved architectural icon."--BOOK JACKET.
