FIRST EDITIONS. A good, generally unsophisticated set, with a few text leaves unopened. The first volume of the first work has plate 29 uncoloured; this is apparently coloured in the Abbey copy. The first work was re-issued in 1835, under the title "Rural Architecture" with the supplement, which was finished just before the author's death from 'apoplexy' at his home on the 20th August 1835.
