Paris: 1800. Decorated Boards. Octavo, pp. 366. 8 engraved plates. Text in French. Good. Item #11869
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.
