"Great Houses of Florida presents forty of the greatest and most intriguing historical houses of the state, including John and Mabel Ringling's fabulous Venetian Palazzo Ca d'Zan in Sarasota, James Deering's spectacular Italianate Villa Vizcaya in Miami, and the Audubon and Hemingway houses in Key West, and the notable domestic architecture of eighteenth-century St. Augustine. With new color photography, this book provides a rare look into the finest houses from the state that both adventurous pioneers and America's extravagant upper classes have called home."--BOOK JACKET.
