Papworth was a well respected architect and artist from early 19th century London. He was a founding member of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and exhibited his paintings at the Royal Academy. This book compiles many of his original house designs, which are illustrated in beautiful full-color aquatints. Binding is strong and book is in very good condition except for foxing throughout. Original cover is gilt-stamped with the name of a previous owner, Robert Leckie [likely the Scottish-American engineer of the same name].

106 pp. 27 hand-colored aquatint plates. Cl.
