LEBAS, Louis Hippolyte (1782--1867)
Oeuvres completes de Jacques Barozzi de Vignole publiées par H. Lebas et F. Debret architectes.
A Paris de l'imprimerie de P. Didot l'ainé imprimeur du Roi, 1815.
[4], 2 p., engr. t.-pl., 84 [i.e. 85] engr. pl. ; 51.5 cm. (2º)

No more published. The engravings are based on drawings of Vignola's buildings made by Lebas and Debret during visits to Italy in the early 1800s. The first of 25 fascicles projected, each to include 6 plates, was published in 1815, but the work was apparently abandoned after 14 installments. The 1844 catalogue of the Soane library (p. 214) lists '14 Livraisons in Portfolio' dated 1823, suggesting this as the publication date for the final fascicle. BAL Early printed books, no. 3968.

Copy Notes Imperfect; wanting the half-title, title-leaf and 'Introduction' (pp. [1]--2). The present copy consists of the plates alone in a later mid-nineteenth century binding, at which time the part wrappers and text appear to have been discarded. The first front free-endpaper bears a note in George Bailey's hand stating that the work was never completed; the third front free-endpaper bears a contents list in the same hand.

Binding Later mid-C19th half calf, blind-tooled borders, gilt thick-thin double-ruled spine, blue morocco spine-label, brown morocco-grain cloth boards, black morocco onlay on upper board lettered in gilt 'Oeuvres De/ Jacques Barozzi/ De Vignole/ 84 Planches// Publiées/ Par H. Lebas Et F. Debret/ Architectes Paris/ 1815'.
