[Architecture]. Monroy, Jean Francois.
Traite d'Architecture Pratique.
Octavo, pp. 366. 8 engraved plates. Text in French.
Scarce title in the U.S., this book was an influential architectural handbook in its day, shedding light on the building technology and practices of the 18th century. This is a nice copy of this rarity in a period half-leather binding over marbled boards. Complete with 8 plates, missing the title page and final page 367, otherwise a good, tight copy.
Binding: Decorated Boards
