Examines in detail the works of American architect Hooker (1766-1836), whose Neo-Classical designs for public buildings, commercial structures, churches and residences (most no longer extant) shaped the architectural character of early 19th-century Albany during its rapid development as New York's capital city. A lengthy essay chronicling Hooker's career prefaces a well-illustrated catalogue raisonne of 134 structures and unrealized projects designed by or attributed to the architect that incorporates transcriptions of numerous proposals, construction bills and other documents.
