NICHOLSON, PETER. - The Student's Instructor in Drawing and Working the Five Orders of Architecture. Fifth edition, considerably augmented and improved.

London, for J. Taylor 1823. Octavo (original?) sheep (neatly rebacked, corners worn); viii,,39pp and 41 engraved plates. Some spotting or browning but quite a good copy. ¶ Like all of Nicholson's books this was useful and successful; first published in 1795 with six or seven editions over the next 50 years. It remained essentially unchanged after the third edition of 1810 and formed a centrepiece of a builder's or provincial architect's library - particularly in such far-flung places as Ireland and the colonies. John Verge owned a copy of this edition - it is just about the only book known to survive from his library. There was at least one American edition in the thirties. At the end are three designs for doorcases.
