About this Item

Imperial 8vo: [8],159,[1]pp, with 76 delicately hand-colored aquatints (five folding), by J. Hamble and Joseph Constantine Stadler after Papworth and Augustus Pugin, "of past London, with representations of City churches and other topographical features now no longer in existence" (Prideaux). Later green morocco over navy pebbled cloth, flat spine (sunned to brown) lavishly gilt, all edges marbled, marbled end papers. A fine Ackermann production in a tall, attractive copy, beautifully bound, occasional light offsetting and scattered foxing, plates fresh, clean and bright. Provenance: small, discreet book label of Le Baron E. de Thysebaert to corner of front paste down. Tooley 361. Abbey, Scenery, 217. Prideaux, p. 143-44. First Edition in book form, the issue without Papworth's name on title page (no priority established). Originally published in Ackermann's Repository of arts, literature, fashions, etc., from 1810-15. Papworth, one of Ackermann's most prominent stalwarts, was an architect, designer of furniture, decorations, accessories, and store fronts, and a landscape gardener. N. B.
