[Carpentry]. Austin, H. and Barmard. Henry Esq.

The Builder's Guide or a practical treatise on the several orders of Architecture, together with the Gothic Style of Building; Constituting a most complete Exposition of the most modern and approved methods adopted by skilful architects in the various de Revised and Improved with Additional School-house and Villa Architecture

Daniel Appleton & Co. New York 1846 Folio, pp. 55, illustrated with 70 folio drawings. According to colleague Charles Wood: "... this is the earliest large folio American architectural book, and as such, an item of special bibliographical interest, especially to those who study formats. This was the most complete of the Greek Revival builder's guides." Hitchcock 590
Unlike most similar books of this style, whose plates are largely "geometry", this is a practical, millwork-oriented title with thousands of building profiles (stairways, fitted interiors,etc.). Very, very scarce, especially both volumes together.
