Abstract
Picturesque pattern books provided architects trained in the Greek Revival style with new inspiration. In this article, Edward F. Zimmer looks at the work of Luther Briggs, a young Boston architect in the 1840s and 50s. An examination of Briggs' drawings and buildings show how his work progressed from close copying to a development of his own style.
