Details of Antient Timber Houses of the 15th and 16th centuries [and] Gothic Furniture in the style of the 15th Century [and] Designs for Gold and Silversmiths [and] Iron and Brass Work in the style of the 15th and 16th centuries [and] The True Principles of Pointed or Christian Architecture [and] An Apology for the Revival of Christian Architecture in England [and] A Treatise on Chancel Screens and Rood Lofts
London: Ackermann, Weale, and Dolman, 1835-1851. 7 vols. in 2, large 4to, bound in full green and full red morocco, very richly stamped in gold and with onlays in green on the red volume, and the green volume with the Order of the Garter device on both covers; boards bevelled (red volume) or rolled (green volume), backstrips richly gilt, all edges on both volumes deeply gauffred. In virtually flawless condition. Full collations and plate counts as per Fowler (see below). An absolutely astonishing collection of all but one of Pugin?s major works, perhaps his own copies bound for him in unsigned bindings of the very highest quality and with his name stamped at the foot of the backstrip of the red volume. The later bookplate of Samuel Joshua Cooper is pasted in both volumes over an earlier bookplate (perhaps Pugin?s?). The only significant volume not present is his controversial book ?Contrasts?, privately issued in 1836. For detailed descriptions of each volume see Fowler 264, 261, 263, 262, 266, 268, and 272. The Bookpress suggests that the first four works were in fact issued together; perhaps the remaining three also were, as they were certainly reprinted together later by Bohn. Weinreb confirms that in his monumental ?The Arts Applied? (1975).
