As one of the 18th century's most influential architecture writer/designers, Abraham Swan came to define many conventions of English rococo detail. Included here is a range of floor plans and detail elevations that demonstrates both Swan's unique style, as well as the types of homes prevalent in Georgian England and colonial America. 125 illustrations.
The book is packed with useful details of the period, but also with useful, clear and detailed engravings of frontages of period buildings. These are ideal for reproduction and reuse.
Outstanding examples of Palladian influenced work, and detailing from cornices, mouldings, double staircases, entryways, galleries, salons and dressing rooms.
