Ouvres d'Architecture, nouvelle edition - Vincenzo Scammozi, Charles-Antoine Jou - 1764. 
1764 - Unusual item comprising the 82 plates from Joubert's 1764 work on Scammozi. This is not the book itself (which is extremely rare) but what appears to be the full collection of plates bound into a stand-alone volume, possibly intended as a portable personal reference work. There is no printed text, only a contemporary handwritten note 'architecture de Scammozi 1764' on the front flyleaf. The binding is paper covered boards, with recent professional cloth repair to the spine & gutters. The collection of plates is complete (1-82). Plates 1 & 6 have been trimmed to a slightly smaller size than the rest. Condition is generally very clean, with some foxing/toning to plates 1, 2, 6, 11-13 (mostly affecting page edges, rather than printed area). On plates 1-48 there is a water stain to the bottom spine corner but again not affecting the printed area, and on some pages very faint indeed. One of the photographs illustrates this. Additional images available upon request. Language: eng [Attributes: Hard Cover]
