What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Rebound, Scarce
Two architectural works by Thomas Frederick Hunt bound in one volume.
'Designs for Parsonage Houses, Alms Houses, etc. etc., With Examples of Gables and Other Curious Remains of Old English Architecture.', the first edition, published in 1827. Illustrated with twenty-one plates. Bound without the advertisement leaf, but all plates are present.
'Half a Dozen Hints on Picturesque Domestic Architecture, in a Series of Designs for Gate Lodges, Gamekeeper's Cottages, and Other Rural Residences', a scarce work, the second edition, published in 1826. Illustrated with twelve plates. Collated, complete.
Both works look at the charming features often found in domestic architecture in England. Hunt in particular focuses on architecture of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the Tudor style being a vast departure from the Gothic style that was popular when these works were published.
Appendix at the end of 'Half a Dozen Hints' details the estimates of how much structures in the work would cost to build, such as a gate lodge, gamekeeper's house, and hunting box.
The author, Hunt, designed the mausoleum for Burns at Dumfries.
Rebound in a modern cloth binding. Externally fine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean with scattered spots, including to the plates.
