About this Item: 1857. Paperback. BURGES, William, and Adolphe-Napoleon Didron. ICONOGRAPHIE DES CHAPITEAUX DU PALAIS DUCALE A VENISE. Paris: Victor Didron, 1857. Small 4to. Publisher's wrappers. 58, (2) pages, 3 engraved plates. The earliest fully- fledged publication by William Burges. Iconography was to play a very important part in his architectural oeuvre - both ecclesiastical and secular. This ephemeral work launched Burges as an architectural scholar. It sheds considerable light on his aesthetic ideals during his formative years. After studying the Doge's Palace in Venice he paid a visit to the young Parisian gothic revivalist Adolphe-Napoleon Didron. Didron made a similar study of the Doge's Palace and agreed to publish Burges study with the proviso that his own notes on the Doge's Palace be included, along with illustrations. Ruskin contributed one of the illustrations. Uncut copy; wrappers browned; professionally respined, Seller Inventory # 37842
