Drop-head title. The contents of this catalogue closely follow those described in the catalogue with the same title but fewer pages (11, [1] pp.) described in the BAL catalogue. In both the first item listed is Gwilt's edition of Chambers, A treatise on the decorative part of civil architecture, [1824] announced as 'Will be published May the first, Part I (to be completed in six parts)' and the second item is the second edition of Joseph Gwilt's Sciography, 1824, here announced as 'Published February 1'. As in the BAL copy, item 34 announces a Life of G.B. Piranesi ...'. In the Soane copy items 35 and 36 are a Baronetage, 4 vols, and a Peerage of Ireland by William Playfair; item 37 and last is W. Robinson, The Sawyer's ready reckoner, 1818. The final unnumbered leaf advertises 'Architectural and Other Scientific Works Of The Chevalier De Wiebeking, ...' available from Priestley and Weale. See description of BAL, Early printed books, no. 2629.
