Gli Edificj Antichi Di Roma Ricercati nelle loro piante, e restituiti alla pristina magnificenza secondo Palladio, Desgodetz, ed altri piu recenti con l'aggiunta di qualche modern fabrica as uso degli artisti, e de'viaggiatori
ND (1799). 1st edition. Vellum. Larger 8vo. Bound in full contemporary vellum with morocco spine label. Contains 81 of 82 copper engravings by Tomasso Piroli of various ancient Roman buildings, temples, and monuments, such as the Coliseum, the Pantheon, the Obelisks etc. drawn to scale, showing scale in both Roman palms and French feet. Typically, there are several external profiles and one or two interior plans. Each engraving is very finely executed and shows little foxing to the image (although such is present in the margins), and measures approximately 8 x 12 cm. There are a few neat, pencilled, notations in the margins of some of the plates, and one blank rear page is fully annotated in pencil. There is also a nicely executed drawing, in pencil, on the (blank) reverse of plate 59, of a portion of plate 60. As is typical, the vellum binding is soiled, and has caused the boards to bow, and the joints are partially cracked, but the binding remains tight. Early ink inscription on the top right of the title page. Eight pages of text, containing mainly the description of the plates. Ill.: engravings.

REID, STUART (INTRODUCTION)
Personal Image for Social Space
,Nine large pamphlets folded square and inserted in a stiff paper wrapper. Text is in both English and French. The first pamphlet is 'Introduction' by Stuart Reid. Then there are seven individual pamphlets by Gerald Ferguson, Ian Carr-Harris, E. J. Goodden, J. F. Granzow, Robert Jekyll, Frederic Urban, Stephanie White & Warren Hamill, and, finally, a pamphlet with the Jurors' Statements. This latter pamphlet discusses the 'submissions' (other pamphlets?) in some detail, but does not identify the competition for which the design proposals were apparently submitted. The National Library of Canada lists two copies in its holdings and shows the Canada Council as the sponsoring organization ('Exhibition and competition made possible through the assistance of the Canada Council'). A cursory examination of each pamphlet suggests that this is another example of the usual government-sponsored fluff. Each pamphlet slightly worn at edgs; else all in very good condition. Folder a bit more worn, but still in good plus condition. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations.
