THORNE, William
The perpetual guide, for the equitable adjustment of builders' prices. By Wm. Thorne, architect and surveyor.
London: printed for W. Simpkin and R. Marshall, 1824.
[4], xxiv, 283, [1] p. : tables ; 22.5 cm. (8°)

'The present cannot be strictly called a new book, a Prospectus of it having issued as far back as 1822, and the work itself published in 1824; but we suspect that, though a work of rare merit, it is still ... little known ... for though the principal portion of it was written "several years ago," and there have, since that period, been many alterations in prices, yet the Tables are so constructed, as "to meet any fluctuation whatever to which the value of building materials and labour is liable."' -- Mechanics' Magazine, vol. 9 (London 1828), pp. 318--319.

Binding Contemporary C19th grey paper boards, printed paper spine-label.

Reference Number 4284
