Here's a new addition to your coffee table. A new book, released yesterday, describes the history of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Vermont, New York, and Connecticut. Courthouses of the Second Circuit: Their Architecture, History, and Stories by the Federal Bar Council (Federal Bar Foundation and Acanthus Press, 2015) describes 19 active buildings, as well as earlier structures no longer used within the circuit today. They range from some of the nation’s earliest federal courthouses to contemporary buildings. It contains 220 drawings and photographs culled from various sources including the General Services Administration and court personnel. Courthouses of the Second Circuit is available for purchase on the Federal Bar Council, Acanthus Press, and Amazon sites, along with select bookstores.
