Comments to eBook Cobblestone landmarks of New York State (A York State Book)
Vutaur
If you are interested in the cobblestone buildings of New York, this is one of only a couple of books on the subject. The books starts with four short introductory chapters covering the history and construction of cobblestone buildings followed by about 100 b&w photos, one per building, with a one-paragraph description on the facing page. The vast majority of the buildings are in the western half of New York State.

If you plan to travel and see these buildings, the book to look for is Cobblestone Quest: Road Tours of New York's Historic Buildings. However this book does not include the dozen or so cobblestone buildings in central New York that are included in Cobblestone Landmarks of New York State.

Not a coffee table book, but nice architecture scholarship (in too short supply nowadays).
