London, J. Taylor, 1807 - 4°, 26 S (Text), 22 Kupferstich-Taf., Kart., Rücken im Stil der Zeit fachmänisch erneuert, Papier min. gebräunt, schönes Exemplar. Erste Auflage. John Lugar (1772/3-1855), architect, was the son of a Colchester carpenter. He established himself in London ca. 1799, and exhibited at the Royal Academy from that date on; in due course he developed a very widespread practice as a country-house architect, which extended to Scotland and Wales as well as throughout much of England. His first book of designs, which helped bring his name to public attention, was his 1805 Architectural sketches for cottages, rural dwelling, and villas. Lugar was a practitioner of the Picturesque after the manner of John Nash and Humphry Repton, working in a wide variety of architectural styles including the 'Grecian', the Tudor Gothic, and that of the cottage ornée as well as the castellated. He also served as county surveyor for Essex from 1812 to 1816, and became a freeman of Colchester in 1812. (Thanks for information to Mr. John Dury, Essex). 2000 gr. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
