Publication Date: 1830

Binding: Hardcover

Edition: New Edition.


Folio, 45 x 31 cm. With two frontispieces, portraits, 191 plates, including maps and plans, some folding, vignettes. List of subscribers and errata. There was little to no direct knowledge in Europe of Greek antiquity in the 18th century until the first expedition by the authors herein was funded by the Society of Dilettante in 1751 to make the first accurate surveys of ancient Greek architecture. Their studies spurred renewed interest in classical architecture. Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of the first volume of this work. Light to moderate foxing to plates, some offsetting, a few quires browned, corners worn, bookplate of the Boston architect W.P.P. Longfellow on paste-downs. Contemporary marbled boards, calf corners, later sheep spines darkened and rubbed. Very good. 4 vols. Bookseller Inventory # 19570
