The Architect's Shelf: Books and Print Culture in the Making of a Profession. The history of the book is a now well-established line of inquiry for historians. Since 1983, the American Antiquarian Society has pioneered the study of the book and of print culture as an interdisciplinary approach to understanding American culture. The result is a coherent and rich discussion of book and print culture and the role it played in forging the architect's profession. Books as an aide to professionalization, indeed, emerges as one of the leading themes in this volume. Many of the architects profiled pursued a similar educational path.

Starting with the assumption "that the better we understand the production and consumption of books, the closer we come to a social history of culture," Hall expertly lays out the state of our knowledge in the areas of printing, literacy, reading, and the interchange between learned and popular.

Starting with the assumption "that the better we understand the production and consumption of books, the closer we come to a social history of culture," Hall expertly lays out the state of our knowledge in the areas of printing, literacy, reading, and the interchange between learned and popular culture in early America. He then argues for a new approach to the early American cultures of print. By stressing how print was used rather than dwelling on quantitative studies of book production and distribution, Hall sketches a fuller, more human picture of early American culture.

Since the Renaissance, architects have been authors and architecture has been the subject of publications. Architectural forms and theories are spread not just by buildings, but by the distribution of images and descriptions fed through the printing press. The study of an architect's library is an essential avenue to understanding that architect's intentions and judging his or her achievements.In this well-illustrated volume, a chronological sequel to American Architects and Their Books to 1848, twelve distinguished historians of architecture discuss from various points of view the books that inspired architects both famous and not-so-famous, and the books the architects themselves produced. They examine the multifaceted relationship of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century architects to print culture―the literary works that architects collected, used, argued over, wrote, illustrated, designed, printed, were inspired by, cribbed from, educated clients with, advertised their services through, designed libraries for, or just plain enjoyed. The result is a volume that presents the intersection of the history of architecture, the history of ideas, and the history of the book. Changes in print culture during this period had a significant impact on the architectural profession, as revealed in these well-informed scholarly essays.In addition to the editors, contributors include Jhennifer A. Amundson, Edward R. Bosley, Ted Cavanagh, Elspeth Cowell, Elaine Harrington, Michael J. Lewis, Anne E. Mallek, Daniel D. Reiff, Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., and Chris Szczesny-Adams. Among the architects discussed are A. J. Downing, Charles Sumner Greene, James Sims, Samuel Sloan, John Calvin Stevens, Thomas U. Walter, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
