Question
Im looking for some books on windows. Not necessarily how to books but more along the lines of what was done historically and when. I have Historic Millwork by Brent Hull - any other suggestions?

From contributor F:
Architectural Treasures of Early America series is an excellent source for what you want.



From contributor B:
Pete, Elements of Style, A Practical Encyclopedia of Interior Architectural Details from 1485 to the Present (Hardcover) by Stephen Calloway (Author) Ive found was a great resource for styles of doors, windows, etc.

I work in a city historic preservation office. Two solid window books in our library are:

Repairing Old and Historic Windows: A Manual for Architects and Homeowners by the New York Landmarks Conservancy, 1992. It has a good history of window technology and use.

Working Windows, 3rd: A Guide to the Repair and Restoration of Wood Windows by Terry Meany, 2008 is also a regular resource.
