The author was vice president of the Institute of British Architects and author of books on ornamental villas, designs for farm buildings, village architecture, designs for lodges and park entrances, and more. This work went through 42 editions between 1823 and 2016 in English, an attestment to its well-loved classic Victorian design. Each design is shown in four plates, including a front elevation, side elevation, perspective view, and floor plan. Scarce in this edition; this is the first time we've had one for sale.
