In The Press
'A very thorough monograph on the architects' career with project drawings and photographs.' (Antiques Trade Gazette)
 
'This is a work of first-class scholarship, thoroughly annotated and with a detailed listing of all the joint and independent projects. It is beautifully illustrated and, through its objectivity, presents both the men and their work in the most sympathetic light.' (The Architects' Journal, Books of the Year 2000)

'A serious monograph on the Greene brothers, architects of some of the most fascinating houses in America, is long overdue. Edward Bosley … fills the gap with a stunning volume. … he is thorough to a degree … every single building is relentlessly catalogued, costed and recorded. But the main text is fluent and full of contemporary documentation from clients. Best of all, it is illuminated by Mark Fiennes's evocative colour photographs.' (World of Interiors)

'A book which deserves a place on every Arts and Crafts bookshelf as a scholarly and enjoyable portrait of two of America's most fascinating designers.' (Crafts)
