Early New England Interiors

BOSTON – February 2014 – Historic New England just published a limited-edition reprint of Early New England Interiors published in 1878 by architect Arthur Little.

This hard-to-find resource for architecture and preservation enthusiasts reproduces Little’s sketches of some of the region's finest colonial interiors and details from houses in Salem and Marblehead, Massachusetts; Kittery, Maine; and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, including Historic New England’s Governor John Langdon House.

The sketches were done early in Little’s career when he worked as a draftsman for Peabody and Sterns in 1877. In 1878, he went into independent practice and then in 1890 formed a partnership with Herbert W. C. Browne that lasted until the 1920s and focused on domestic architecture for clients in Boston, Brookline, the North Shore of Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C.

The ninety-six-page, hard cover, limited-edition is available while supplies last for $55, plus shipping. Please visit to order a copy.

Historic New England's extensive collection of architectural drawings includes many items from the Little and Browne firm, including the original drawings for Early New England Interiors.
