The Library of Congress: The Art & Architecture of the Thomas Jefferson Building
This handsome, richly illustrated volume explores the history and architecture of the Library's first building, opened in 1897, which is in itself an American treasure. The book features 185 full-color photographs of the recently renovated and reopened Thomas Jefferson Building, most of them taken by noted photographer Anne Day especially for this volume. Historic black-and-white photographs document the building's first one hundred years. The volume was published to celebrate the centennial of the building's opening on November 1, 1897.
John Y. Cole and Henry Hope Reed with introductions by Daniel J. Boorstin and Brendan Gill; color photography by Anne Day.
