Descripción

First edition, folio (570 x 380mm), [4], iv, [6], ii, [3]-11, [1], 12-16 [i.e. 17], [5]]pp., with list of subscribers, 74 [i.e. 55] full-page engraved plates (19 double-page, 2 slightly frayed and dust soiled at margins), uncut in orig. calf-backed boards, rather worn, calf and boards peeling, corners rubbed and worn, but overall a good sound copy with the plates clean and bright. First edition of a rare architectural work of houses designed by James Paine (1717-1789), the seventy-four plates illustrate sixteen of his most important completed projects, including the magnificent stables at Chatsworth, Sandbeck, and Axwell Park. "His architecture is basically Palladian in character, but he was by no means a slavish imitator of Kent and Burlington, and his work is distinguished by several characteristic features that give it a strong individuality." —Colvin, Biographical Dictionary of British Architects 1600-1840. This first part was published for subscribers only in 1767, a second part (not present here) didn't appear until 1783. Harris, 664; Fowler, 207; Millard Collection, English Books, 50.
