Notes

Drawing 207 is affixed to the back of model MR18 and is currently inaccessible. According to Finch Allibone (Cataloguer, 1988) the model was probably made in 1831 and subsequently altered in 1834 with new chimney stacks, following Soane's new designs. Drawing 207 shows the building with the new chimneys (drawings 200-201), which were not executed.

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.
