The original publication of these plates can be dated from the dedication to Louvois as 'Surjntendant et Ordonnateur general des Bastimens de sa Maisté Arts et Manufactures de France' between September 1683 and July 1691. A subsequent impression by Nicolas Langlois was probably issued in the 1690s as an independent suite and as part of L'architecture à la mode. The Soane copy is a reimpression of the Langlois plates for the second edition of L'architecture à la mode published by Jean Mariette (q.v.) around or after 1710. Guilmard p. 130; Berlin Kat. 3452 (359); BAL, Early printed books, no. 1795.
