No plates are marked, and they are all bright and fresh.. Later brown cloth with lighter brown tape spine with title and call nunber written on it. 147 pp., 55 lithographed plates. A presentation copy from the author to J. Harriet Anderson in the year of publication. Contents present the following sections: Rise of Domestic architecture; Defensive Architecture; Roman Villas; Masonry of Roman Architecture; Architecture of the Middle Ages; Domestic Architecture of England; Architecture of Italian Painters; Tuscan Architecture; Gothic Architecture. Lists, and Notices, of the Plates, &c in the Appendix. Extremely rare. By presenting the plates and accompanying text, the author attempted to illustrate how to properly situate a home within its surrounding countryside.
