This book contains a careful comparison of two groups of houses evolving stylistically at the same time, on different continents. It reveals that the Virginia dwellings were consistently larger and more elaborate; had numerous distinctly "American" aspects; were erected for people of higher social status, yet had brickwork surprisingly conservative compared to England at the same time, and are related to English houses of this type more as cousins than as offspring.
