Notes

The reference to Swansea on the verso of drawing 22 is puzzling; there is certainly no link between this door, which is also shown on drawing 21 and the verso of drawing 23, and the Swansea branch bank (q.v.). Alterations to be made to the banking hall are shown on drawings 23 and 24 in pink wash, and include the addition of two small rooms to the rear of the hall (drawing 26). One of these was to be used as a book room (viz. drawing 39). Drawings 27 and 28 may be the full size drawings referred to on drawing 21. The new door is to be 8 feet

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.

Browse (via the vertical menu to the left) and search results for Drawings include a mixture of Concise catalogue records – drawn from an outline list of the collection – and fuller records where drawings have been catalogued in more detail (an ongoing process).
