Such a book is admirable in its suggestiveness, and useful to all." - The Architect's Magazine.
" The arrangement of the plans generally reveals a master hand at this class of architecture. " - The Pall Mall Gazette.

The houses illustrated in this volume are of the best type of suburban house, generally semi-detached, and of limited frontage - a type upon which very little information has been published, although it is one of which the better class estates are largely composed. Skilfully planned, of quiet, refined design, and financially successful (all the examples having been built for sale, and sola), they clearly demonstrate that archi tecture in the suburbs, even when controlled by speculative builders, may be as refined and beautiful as in the country.
