Richard Morris Hunt is the definitive biography of the man who was widely regarded by his contemporaries as the dean of American architects and who was a seminal figure in establishing architecture as a profession in the United States. Covering all of Hunt's major commissions—including his famous fifth Avenue mansions and Newport "cottages"—the book provides a fresh look at the artistic achievements of America's Gilded Age.
