The Architectural Orders.

(Bell, Andrew) (illus.)

Providence, RI: Ziggurat Press, 1989. Quarto. (32)pp. One of forty-five copies. Illustrated with seven copper engravings, originally executed by Andrew Bell, which accompanied the essay, here likewise reprinted, published in the 1797 edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. The former have been printed on handmade Moriki paper, the latter on Rives and Ingres. The result is a publication suitably honorific to its source material, one aesthetically fit to the task and engineered with a mathematical eye apt for both book and building construction. Bound in decorative papers over boards with three exposed brown leather bands, and embossed copper "illustration" inset to upper cover. Trace edgewear, else near fine. Item #33309
