A prospectus and subscription form for the first part of Charles Pitt's Exposition of some particulars respecting the plan and expenses of the New Street, published in four parts, 1818--1820 (q.v.). Pitt, who earlier had been a fellow student with Soane studying surveying at Mr Nelson's in Park Lane (Priv. Corr.VI.K.3.3), was embroiled in litigation with the managers of the New Street Establishment, concerned with Nash's plan for Regent Street.

Copy Notes Accompanied by an ALs addressed by Pitt to Soane, dated 21 Septr 1818 / Adelphi.
