DÉTOURNELLE, Athanase (1766--1807)
[Recueil d'architecture nouvelle]
Recueil. D'architecture nouvelle. Par Detournelle, architecte. ... Premiere partie an XIII. ...
A Paris chez l'auteur. [1804--1805].
Engr. t.-pl., 102 engr. pl. ; 34.1 cm. (4°)

Issued in monthly cahiers of six plates each, then cahiers (i.e. pl. 1--60) comprising the 'Première Partie'. The last three cahiers of the second part (pl. 103--120) were not published, probably owing to Détournelle's death in 1807. The work was clearly inspired by Détournelle's ongoing publication with Allais and Vaudoyer between 1802 and 1806 of the Projets d'architecture ... qui ont mérités les grands prix accordés par l'Académie (q.v.). Plate 89 misnumbered 90. BAL, Early printed books, no. 871.

Copy Notes Imperfect; wanting the title-plate and pl. 91--103 i.e. the final two cahiers.

Binding C19th half sheep, gilt roll-tooled spine, blue Kleisterpapier boards.

Reference Number 6486
