Description

The Country Houses of David Adler by Stephen M Salny and Franz Schulze.

The Country Houses of David Adler by Stephen M Salny and Franz Schulze.

Because of Salny's efforts, Adler's work may be getting more national attention today than it did when he was alive. Although it's primarily an architectural study, Salny's book is also valuable as social history. An exploration of Adler's best projects the images in the book are black and white Salny's detailed descriptions of Adler's homes bring to each a full-depth of color. David Adler has finally received a long-overdue monograph of his work. The title is a bit misleading as the oeuvre of Adler consisted entirely of country house commisssions.

Stephen M. Salny, Franz Schulze, Frances Elkins. The Country Houses of David Adler (1882-1949) discusses in depth fifteen representative houses (many with interiors by Adler's sister, the noted interior designer Frances Elkins), illustrated with fine archival photographs and newly drawn plans. In addition, the full scope of Adler's work is documented in an illustrated catalogue raisonne.

Adler's homes are inspirational because they're traditionally designed and include an elegant spirit that just makes you feel like saying, "that's a beautiful home." There are interior photos that are of the most beautiful rooms I've ever seen. The book has photographs and text about each of the homes presented. The photographs are high-quality so you can study them for details. I encountered Adler in other Architectural Design books and I'm very glad to have discovered him. This is a wonderfully presented set of photographs and stories of the development of classical homes from the age of grand houses by one of the last Architects that specialized in them.

David Adler has finally received a long-overdue monograph of his work. The title is a bit misleading as the oeuvre of Adler consisted entirely of country house commisssions. Perhaps a better title would have been The Works of David Adler. As it is, this book is a superior examination of his work. It is well-illustrated and written. I recommend it for those with an interest in relatively unknown early twentieth-century architects who practiced in the Classical Tradition and for those with an interest in Chicago architectural history outside of the usual Modernist tradition.

Though I must say, that I agree that this book could have used some color plates, it in my opinion does not distract from the fact that this is a wonderful book on a fine architect. I personally love the archieval black and white plates, they are so vivid and the Adler homes are quite old, so it somehow seem to fit. This book covers in detail Adler's best country homes, his work was just amazing and the attention to detail in his homes ranks with Horace Trumbaur and McKim, Mead, and White as the best of this age. Chicago is most blessed with his homes, but the Crane Estate, in the Boston suburbs is, in my opinion, his most interesting home and this book does a fine job of covering it. If you have any interest in great American residental architecture, or Mr. Adler's work itself, then I can't imagine you being disappointed in this book.

I really love David Adler. I was thrilled to find out that this book was in the making. But when I finally got my hands on it I was furious to find that there were no color plates in the entire book. All photographs are archival. The Richard Crane mansion in Ipswich is a tremendous house, and I appreciate the old view from the beach, but how does that compare to the view now that all of the landscape has come to maturation. Not including color plates and more contemporary shots was a cruel tease to play.

growing up in Lake Forest, IL...I, too saw these beautiful country estates -- but never knew the common theme was David Adler. Such a wealth of information and history that I have to thank Mr. Salny for. We are talking an era of architecture that included not only the design of a building, but also the design of the gardens, the interiors, etc. A fabulous book -- beautiful and inspiring in so many ways!

Great book and overview of Adler's extensive work. Having grown up in Albert Lasker's Lake Forest estate; Mill Road Farm (p74), I was thrilled to see the arial photo's of the massive estate in it's heyday. One of Adler's most excellent sub-architects Jerome Cerny deserves recognition for his contributions to many of these beautiful houses. Indeed he and his family occupied part of the Mill Road Farm estate while I lived there. Enjoy!
