About This Item

Portable Trunk Pubs, No Reprint Date Reprint of the original 1823 book, featuring a wonderful variety of traditional architects renderings of elegant and useful out buildings, typical of the English or French mannors and chateaus. 52 pages, in very good condition. Flex covers, cloth binding. Replica/reprint published by Library Archive Services Co. (undated) Circa 2004. A delightful look at an early pictorial guide to indoor gardening and growing plants in hot houses, specific to the the often cold climate in England. Each design is utilitarian, well planned and beautifully executed. Includes some for the Queen's Frogmore gardens. Thoroughly engaging, full illustrated. An architects and builders guide. Excerpt from preface: Botany, an elegant and interesting study, has lately become a favorite pursuit among the higher classes of the community; and the attention to forcing of plants, flowers, and fruits, for the table, has increased the demand for Horticultural Buildings of every description. The author therefore hopes this Collection of Plans now offered to the Public, will be found an acceptable production, as various specimens of the different kinds are given, suitable to most situations; viz. Green-houses, Houses for forcing Flowers, Roses, &c., Conservatories, Pineries, Peacheries, and Vineries; also an example of an Aquarium, the only one ever built on such a construction. This Collection will be particularly acceptable, as it exhibits Plans of such Houses only as have been actually built, and as they are dispersed throughout different parts of the kingdom, noblemen and gentlemen, in their several neighborhoods, have an opportunity of appealing to the buildings themselves, and of making an examination of what merits they really possess. These buildings have chiefly been executed from the author's own designs; the others from designs of W. T. Aiton, Esq., his Majesty's Gardener at Kew and Kensington. No speculative or experimental designs are here shown; but such only as have been actually built, and which have been found to answer the purposes for which they were constructed. No stronger proof can be offered for the verity of this assertion, than a desire that the buildings should be investigated. The Plans now made public have been selected from a great number, which have been executed by the author, who, in the course of a long experience, both in designing and executing buildings of this description, has been enabled to make many valuable improvements in their construction; and he begs leave to appeal to the noble and respectable characters whose names are mentioned in this work, for a corroboration of the approbation with which they have been received. etc. Paper / Soft cover reprint edition in very good condition, flex covers, cloth bound, a sturdy book. Overall good copy, and wonderful book. It would make a great gift for the fan in your life, even if that's you. Clean and Unmarked Text. Very Good condition. Text is in English.
