Descripción

First Edition, large folio, 12pp., with list of subscribers, 27 copper-engraved plates (of which plates V and XIV are finely hand-coloured ceiling designs), all the plates are signed by Thomas as architect, some light spotting throughout, recent half morocco in a cont. style, marbled boards, spine with six raised bands and tooled in gilt. One of the scarcest of English 18th century architectural books. This handsome folio work was obviously intended to advertise Thomas's skills and encourage commissions. The designs include a nobleman's villa, a mausoleum, a banqueting house, "Casino" or country retreat, a Gothic garden temple, a bridge, a gate with lodges, the offices at Stackpole Court, Surrey Chapel, a house for Mr. Mirehouse, a hunting seat, a grotto, and several projects for interior furnishings. The list of 176 subscribers includes a number of noble patrons and many of the leading architects of the day (Robert Adam, William Chambers, S. P. Cockerell, Dance, Henry Holland, Marquand, Mylne, James Stuart, James Wyatt, and others). Provenance: Hugh Lupus, 1st Duke of Westminster (1825-1899). Harris, 878; RIBA, 3307; Millard, 84.
