Notes

An earlier outline ground floor plan (drawing 1) dated October 1817 gives the layout of Mello & Pead's property on the left-hand side. These plans (29-31) show the layout of another property on the righthand side. None of these survey plans describe the centre part of the site but it is likely that were four houses with shops facing on to Old Jewry. These plans also give an indication of other buildings to the east of the site, that is, the New Bank Buildings in Princes Street (q.v.).

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).
