Kommentar: “… the French themselves have too much exploited their more pretentious works–city palaces and the hôtels or town houses of great families of the ancien régime, … to the neglect of the less academic and more intimate phases of domestic building, so that scant justice has been done one of the most significant and inviting objects of study where a more genuine appreciation might reasonably have been expected.”
