Architectural Resources at the American Antiquarian Society

This online collection from the American Antiquarian Society boasts design books from some of America's most renowned early architects, as well as a wide array of architectural drawings, lithographs, engravings, periodicals, and photographs of classic American buildings, such as the home of Louisa Mary Alcott. Here readers will find the works of Asher Benjamin, whose late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century architectural vision shaped American cityscapes through the Civil War era. Readers will also find much to admire in the featured design books of Samuel Sloan, Minard Lafever, and Charles Bulfinch, all of whom influenced the development of American architecture. After reading the informative Introduction, the various categories of Drawings, Lithographs, and Periodicals provide a glimpse into the burgeoning architectural trends of early America. For readers who would like to browse the collection more thoroughly, the Search Tips tab provides helpful advice for how to make the most out of the American Antiquarian Society's holdings.
