Notes

The note on the verso referring to Kings Arms Yard EC3, probably concerns Thomas Amyand who lived at this address. In 1799 Soane was involved with Amyand's surrender of his previous house at No.7 Austin Friars for the Commercial Commissioner. The note could have been a message concerning this business. Soane also worked on two houses at Kings Arms Yard, though the dates conflict with the presumed date of this drawing. Thomas Amyand employed Soane for repairs and decorations of his house, No.7 Kings Arms Yard, between July and September 1797. Soane also conducted work at a different house in Kings Arms Yard in 1794.

Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural, design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.
