ARCHITECTURE. - Rudiments of ancient architecture, containing an historical account of the five orders, with their proportions and examples of each from antiques. Third edition, enlarged.

London, for J. Taylor, 1804. Octavo modern plain wrapper, xvi, 136pp, 11 engraved plates and 5 vignettes in text. Contemporary inscription of one T. Broadhurst - possibly the Rev Thomas Broadhurst, father of Australian politician Edward; maybe the stonemason Thomas Broadhurst, father of the politician Henry; maybe any of the Thomas Broadhursts who were transported during the first half of the 19th century. See how easy it is to get distracted? ¶ The primer on classical architecture and the orders for a couple of generations at least, this first appeared in 1789 and was kept in print for some 40 years. The second edition (1794) was decently 'enlarged' but I don't think much changed after that.
