Notes

Robert Chantrell, John Buxton, George Underwood and George Bailey all made drawings of Thellusson & Co's counting house in October and November 1810, although the lack of inscriptions makes it difficult to identify exactly who made the drawings in volume 71. The titles on drawings 91-95 are in Chantrell's hand, though, and there are entries in the Soane office Day Books for 31 October - 2 November recording Buxton drawing a 'plan of [the] timbers of Messrs Thelussons counting house', which could refer to drawings 97 and 98.

The lantern is no longer square but circular (cf. drawings 74-76), 10 feet 6 inches in diameter, and sits on top of a shallow-domed roof.

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).
