HUNT, T.F. [THOMAS FREDERICK]. - Designs for Parsonage Houses, Alms Houses, Etc with Examples of Gables, and Other Curious Remains of Old English Architecture.

London, Longman, Rees, Orme 1827. Quarto, uncut in publisher's boards with printed title label on the front (rebacked); [8],34pp and 21 litho plates. Some foxing and a mild tide mark at the bottom of a couple of plates, still a pleasing enough copy. The plates, printed by Hullmandel, are on India, mounted, possibly denoting the proof issue. ¶ The sequel to Hunt's 'Half a Dozen Hints' (1825), still firmly planted in a pure old England unconfounded by the Gothic. He makes the pointed point that his renderings are uncluttered and unsweetened by "factitious" effects. They are as built, not as they might appear with years of ivy, gardens and mellowing. We need look no further than colleague P.F. Robinson for such abject fiddling.
