A very good copy of this rare and celebrated architectural study. The book is complete in text and illustration; there are 85 engraved plates, one of which is the frontispiece, and the first plate is printed within the text, it being a single Grecian column. The fore edge of the text block is pierced in triplicate on the fore edge of each leaf, as though the binder had not realised before it was too late that this was not the position for the sewing thread ! There is no interference with the text. There are one or two closed marginal tears, occasional browning, some thumbing and creasing to the corners, a few spots, occasional slight dust staining, and some neat repairs to the fore edge of the final plate, but in the margin only. The handsomely restrained binding is of full chocolate calf, with blindstamped panels and ruled edges to each cover, and the spine is gilt decorated in compartments between raised bands, and there is a contrasting leather lettering piece. The endpapers will be the same date as the binding. N° de ref. de la librería 23473
