MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book is a significant contribution to a recent body of literature examining the more conservative elements of the Arts and Crafts movement and its close cousin, the Colonial Revival. Meister has mined a rich vein of archival material to produce a clear, readable monograph that elucidates Warren's restrained, English-inspired architecture."--Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians
"Maureen Meister makes the point that some architects are influential because they have a lot of clients, while others exert their influence less directly--but more widely--through students... Warren's own blend of Gothic, Georgian, and Colonial forms was perceived as the proper New England style long after his death in 1917. In serving the Society of Arts and Crafts for longer than anyone else, Warren further imprinted area taste."--Old House Interiors
"Maureen Meister presents a clear and concise body of new research... In addition, Meister identifies a specific style of building created and inspired by Warren... that has been largely overlooked by architectural historians to date... by consulting many rare and unpublished sources... Meister sheds new light on this little-known architect and tastemaker and proves that he was largely responsible for Boston's contribution to the arts and crafts movement... Meister has written the definitive book on H. Langford Warren." --Winterthur Portfolio
"a delightful... book... Meister's masterful exploration of Herbert Langford Warren's career illuminates... The reader is rewarded with a comprehensible account of shifting architectural trends in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and a surprisingly fascinating discussion of a man who serves as an important component in understanding the Boston society that he served... Meister offers a well-written, scholarly and useful account... interested readers will be rewarded by discovering more than they may have expected. Meister... succeeds admirably."--The New England Quarterly
