I bought this book years ago from the bookshop in Edith Wharton's home, The Mount. And then I didn't pay much attention to it.

SUPERtonto, you can even read a book while that little part of you defeats and teaches
give him a coupl'a scratches instead of stabs, he's still your friend

Being twenty-five years old the practical information in the books is now outdated as a guidebook, however it is an interesting source document and includes biographical time lines highlighting the events relevant to residency at the house site, as well as brief, but informative biographical sketches on each of the authors. The text is more biographically-gendered than it is about the homes themselves. The appendix listing private literary home sites throughout New England is a treasure.
